Duration: 30 minutes

First broadcast: on BBC HDLatest broadcast: on BBC Two England

Gardening magazine. Toby Buckland and Joe Swift are back at Greenacre enjoying the garden in full summer bloom. July is the time to sit back and enjoy your garden; to put your feet up and really reap the benefits of all the hard work you've put in over spring and early summer. But it also allows gardeners time for small weekend building projects, so Toby is getting stuck into building an ingenious herb spiral - an easy build with a cunning design allowing all the herbs you like to cook with to be grown in one small but beautiful planter.

Joe Swift is in the vegetable patch harvesting crops like peas, early potatoes and salad that are ready to eat but he also has top tips on sowing exotic Chinese veg now to ensure you still have crops to eat well into the autumn. Added to that he's got ideas to help make sure that aphids, slugs, snails and caterpillars don't get to enjoy your veg before you do.

Toby and Joe are also sorting through the prairie plants collected from the plant swap at Gardeners' World Live and planning how to achieve the most impact with them in the prairie border at Greenacre.

And Carol Klein is at Glebe Cottage in Devon looking into the robust and versatile Geranium family - there's a cheerful member of the family that will flourish in every soil type and situation. Show less
