The Beechgrove Garden


Episode 10

Duration: 30 minutes

First broadcast: on BBC Two ScotlandLatest broadcast: on BBC Two Scotland

In the Beechgrove Garden there are pumpkins, squashes and water melons. Jim, Carole, and Lesley are looking forward and tending to some of the really big late season produce. They also give their individual take on a viewer's question about the best way to tie up plants.

Carole is helping Mark Cardno and Claire Reid in their garden near Inverurie. The couple have a stone circle they don't know what to do with and Carole creates a healthy herb garden in the round.

Jim is on the lovely island of Mull again and is visiting the statuesque gardens that surround Torosay Castle. Records go back to around 1900, when the formal terraces and gazebos were built as well as importing the 19 famous statues from a deserted villa in Padua, Italy, to decorate the ornate formal gardens. Jim takes in the central feature of the water gardens, that are alive with candelabra primulas at this time of the year. Show less
