  • Garden Lover's Diary - January

    26 Jan 2018 BBC Gardeners' World Live

    I wouldn’t say I’m a follower of fashion, but when it comes to trends in the garden I’ve got my ear to the ground! 2018 presents some clear trends – all stemming from the fact that our outside space is precious and is coming at an ever increasing premium.

    More than ever, this year we’re going to be making the most of what ever space we’ve got.

  • Garden and gardening trends for 2018

    19 Jan 2018 BBC Gardeners' World Live

    January is an exciting time - some of the first bulbs are starting to push through the hard earth and there's an optimism in the air. It's also the time to look forward to what the Great British gardeners will be focusing on this year. 

    So, read on for our thoughts from BBC Gardeners' World Live HQ, on the gardening trends for 2018!

    In winter, our gardens take on a new dimension. Whilst colours are muted and textures are diminished, it serves only to enhance what is left – what better time to reflect and take pleasure from the little things that make our gardens beautiful.

  • Plant varieties packed with festive sparkle

    01 Dec 2017 BBC Gardeners' World Live

    With a touch of frost and a drift of snow appearing like a blanket over the country, my attention turns to the plants which symbolise the sparkle and magic of winter.

    From the enchanting beauty of Rose 'Festive Jewel' to the ever-popular Christmas Box there are a host of wonderfully named plants to spread festive cheer this season.

  • A Garden Lover’s Diary – November

    20 Nov 2017 BBC Gardeners' World Live

    With the weather getting colder, I’ve retreated to the comforts of my garden shed for a bit of a sort-out and some R&R! Whilst in there, I’m gathering my thoughts for the coming year.

    And it’s not just my garden I’m planning for next year… when not in my shed I’m with the team, busy creating the show of all shows for 2018 – mark my words there’ll be no shortage of fresh inspiration coming your way!

  • Chargrilled broccoli, miso dressing, hazelnuts

    14 Nov 2017 BBC Gardeners' World Live & Rich Harris

    The veg patch can be looking rather sparse at this time of year, but there are a few top winter veg that will keep you flush in home-grown produce over the colder months, including broccoli.

    This recipe from Rich Harris, demonstrated live on stage at the BBC Good Food Show Summer 2017, gives a fantastic umami twist to the popular winter veggie.

    Recipe from the Veg Patch

    Nadiya Hussian's Beetroot and Mackerel Crescents

    As the GYO season comes to an end, you may just still be able to come across some local beetroot to give this recipe the homegrown depth of flavour that it deserves, as demonstrated by Nadiya Hussain back at the BBC Good Food Show Summer in June.

    This recipe will use beetroot, onion, garlic and dill from your veg patch.

  • A Garden Lover’s Diary – September

    26 Sep 2017 BBC Gardeners' World Live

    Welcome back everyone – what a lovely summer! However, I think we can kiss goodbye to any chance of an Indian summer and replace it with soggy September. Our recent weather makes me consider how we need to work with our changeable climate - be it surprisingly hot Aprils or shockingly wet Septembers.

    If you’re gardening in the rain this month, read on!

  • A Garden Lover’s Diary – August

    11 Aug 2017 BBC Gardeners' World Live

    Wow, August, here we are already. This is the moment when so many of us take off on our summer holidays, or these days so many of us stay put for our summer holidays!

    I’m going to be taking time off to explore some areas of the UK that I’ve not been to before - taking in inspirational gardens, parkland and the flora and fauna of the British Isles along the way.

    Have a great summer everyone!
