gardener’s world s45e06 2012.

13th April 2012.

This episode is packed with know-how about how to sow a seed and ideas about improving gardens this summer. Monty begins by explaining that, by sowing a few simple seeds, he has been able to stock the beds in his walled garden with summer colour. He also carries out some timely pruning of winter flowering shrubs to ensure plenty of flowers next spring. As a response to a keen gardener's cry for help, Carol gives a masterclass on successful seed sowing and shows what mix of compost to use, how to sow different sizes of seed, how to water them and what aftercare they need. Rachel returns to her group of novice gardeners as they get going on their cut flower patch and begin sowing the easiest of all seeds to grow - hardy annuals.

The programme also visits a man who last year set himself the challenge of creating a two-acre meadow in Somerset crammed with a heady mix of annual flowers with such spectacular results that it became known as the field of dreams.
