' September Work in the Garden '
D. Harris and J. Glavin
The most useful gardeners are. those who know the special requirements of plants in different parts of the country. J. Glavin , who is coming to the microphone this evening with D. Harris , has had wide experience, for he was born in Ireland, spent his early years in the North of England, and then came to the West Country. He was for several years on the staff of the horticultural department of Leeds University, and later was on the staff of Somerset County Council. Although he retired some years ago, he has not lost his love of gardening, and his garden in Bridgwater has a fine show of flowers, fruit, and vegetables.

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

- not those of today.
