In Your Garden C. H. MIDDLETON


We have produced a Style Guide to help editors follow a standard format when editing a listing. If you are unsure how best to edit this programme please take a moment to read it.
There is no busier time of the year for a gardener, and though hedges and ornamental deciduous trees require trimming, shrubs and bushes staking and tying, though gladioli and hardy biennials wait to be planted and perennials to be divided, it is to the kitchen garden that all hands must be rushed.
The pruning of fruit trees must be finished ; potatoes must be put in-a labour of Hercules. Main crops of peas, Windsor beans, parsnips, carrots must be sown. Leeks along with onions-the young onions to be drawn for spring salads, the leeks to stand. Mustard and cress with a sheet of glass to assist germination ; radishes white and red ; early lettuce in sheltered corners. Then there are cabbages and artichokes to be planted out, night sentries of soot to be posted against raids by slugs, and a hundred and one other things requiring immediate attention.
Whether you're a head gardener with labour reduced to half a man and a boy through financial crisis at the Manor, or whether you're owner, gardener and boy yourself, you're lost without method.
This evening Mr. C. H. Mid dleton is to devote his talk to the kitchen garden-to method, sowing and planting, roots and seeds, soil and nourishment, protection ; in short, to all the things belonging to March.


Unknown: Mr. C. H. Mid

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.
