Christine’s Garden s02.

BBC Two 23 Mar 2007

Christine Walkden's garden blossoms in spring, but she still finds time to help her struggling neighbour Reg, and offer tips at an old steam railway line in Yorkshire.


It's late spring and a busy time of the year for horticulturalist Christine Walkden. She's been invited to a tomato weekend in the West Country, where she can indulge in her passion for plant spotting.

It's June and there's a hose pipe ban in place. Horticulturalist Christine is determined not to let her plants die. She digs over her beds and prepares the garden for summer, but finds time to head north.

Despite Christine's best efforts her plants are wilting under a relentless summer sun. But never one to shirk a challenge she takes on a 60ft long and 12ft high overgrown hedge armed only with secateurs.

Christine and Reg have decided to enter their tomatoes into a local Summer Show. The two titans go head to head to see who will be King of the Toms.

September arrives and with it the first smells of autumn. Christine heads north to visit a farmers' market, where she buys lots of local produce in preparation for a Lancashire evening to be held back at home - complete with Reg and a sing-a-long.
