Description

Whether you are new to gardening or an old hand, weeding is part and parcel of the pastime. But maybe it’s time to give some of those weeds a second chance. This weekend on Gardeners’ Corner, David Maxwell hears from Amy Kelly on weeds she wouldn’t be without. He meets Lori Hartman who is planting ‘prairie style’ in her first garden in Broughshane to remind her of her native USA. Also on the programme, an update from Alan Power as he gets to know a new garden in county Kerry after many years at Stourhead in Wiltshire and David is joined by Cherry Townsend and Maurice Parkinson to answer listeners’ questions including, how to stop your tomatoes trusses falling before they ripen and getting out of the seed coat – should we give those new shoots a hand? The team will be taking live calls and texts on the usual numbers or you can email anytime gardenerscorner@bbc.co.uk
