Beechgrove Garden S10e15.

Carole visits two passionate showers and growers who are entering the Dundee Flower Show. Alistair Gray in Brechin is a show vegetable grower and winner of the 2016 World Potato Championship, while Bruce McLeod in Meigle grows champion chrysanthemums, while Jim visits Philip and Marianne Santer at Langley Park near Montrose.

For over 21 years, she has helped raise more than a quarter of a million pounds for the Midlands Air Ambulance Charity - a figure which works out at over 100 life-saving air ambulance missions. To this day, despite crippling arthritis, she remains one of the service's most dedicated fundraisers.
