A weekly date with Percy Thrower and his gardening friends.
This week he shows some of his favourite varieties of fuchsia, and advises on pruning raspberries and blackcurrants; earthing up celery; removing foliage from outdoor tomatoes; planting spring cabbage; protecting flowers on the outdoor chrysanthemums; and disbudding the indoor flowering chrysanthemums.
