After the long drought, gardeners are finding themselves with unusual problems and worries as they prepare their gardens for the winter. What treatment do the parched lawns need? What about trees and shrubs that appear withered and shrivelled? What planting can be undertaken in the dry ground? And should some thought be given to methods of conserving water in case the same thing happens next year?
Put your questions to the two experts, Frances Perry and Arthur Billitt.

' She thought a lot in metaphors now; the rope of seven strands that tied her to her desires, the ocean into which she, the dewdrop, would eventually melt ... She murmured words like " blessed void" or "eternal sleep" as she sliced and peeled, and squirted liquid on the window panes.'

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.
To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and
50s, you can navigate by issue.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
