Introduced by Geoff Hamilton and Gay Search
Once the lawn and hard landscaping are complete the new garden really begins to take shape and by early June it is time for planting. In a small garden it is important to select plants which will provide year round interest and, with cost in mind, it is just as important to plant them correctly especially in the heavy clay soil of the First Time Garden.
Most gardens offer a wide range of different growing conditions - dry shade, north-or south-facing borders and acid or limey conditions - so Geoff and Gay advise on which plants to use.

St Louis is the gateway of America where west meets east and there is a huge spectacular arch - one of the most impressive structures we have ever seen.

He also visits a gospel radio station and tastes a local delicacy - a brain sandwich.

The Man with No Name,
Dirty Harry and the other characters in the Eastwood repertory have dominated the box office for over 25 years. He has made over 40 films and directed 14 of them, invariably starring in them as well. With his new film. Bird, he stayed behind the camera to tell the story of jazz great Charlie Parker - a significant departure in Eastwood's extraordinary career.
Despite the commercial success of his films, critical acclaim has sometimes eluded him, particularly in his own country. Bird, however, has opened to rave reviews from all the American media. The Village Voice called it 'the best jazz movie ever made'.
Arena goes to Nevada to talk to Clint Eastwood about the new film and about his career as a director. He feels no resentment of the critics who are now reassessing his reputation. 'I survived them,' he smiles.
