BBC Beechgrove Garden
« on: June 12, 2015, 08:21:32 AM »
For the first time in many months I watched the BBC Beechgrove Garden last night imagine my surprise to see and hear our very own Ian Young for once at last something interesting with such enthusiasm for the wee plants we love and his superb trough planting he also showed how to make and rescue an old polystyrene fish box, the whole part he had on the show was far to short it was great entertainment informative and fun although Carol the presenter did not like the stour (dust) from the dry sand thank you Ian.  cheers Ian the Christie kind

I wondered why I hadn't seen Maggi's dad on the programme. Then today I found it on the HD recorder from last Sunday.

Ian - you can see Beechgrove throughout the UK on it's Sunday morning repeat  on " regular" telly. Time varies a bit but often around 8am , after the repeat of Gardener's World on BBC2. Those with a fancy Sky box thingy can see it on the Thursday  airing, via Sky Channel 971
After the two airings of each programme they are availabe for a few weeks on the BBC i-player for those in the UK : http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b00721bz

In  the new series of the Beechgrove Garden on BBC TV,  Brian Cunningham, Head Gardener at Scone Palace (and SRGC member!)last week  began a revamp of the garden's alpine area.  In this week's programme ( in Scotland tonight at 7pm rather than the usual 7.30  and on Sunday morning on nationwide BBC2)  Brian visit the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh and speaks to John Mitchell of RBGE ( and yes, of course, SRGC member  and Edinburgh Group convener!)

 Don't miss it!

In this weeks programme they visited a garden with low "Yew" hedges. These were essentially brown. Is this a gold variety or the effect of Scottish weather? If mine in the south were that colour I would assume they were more or less dead.

I just looked at the segment to see - I think, by the appearancae and the fact the gardener mentions that in summer they provide a contrast with the lush green, that the yew is a golden variety. I admit that in the long shots it looks pretty dead!

It's not available down here any more Mark. No more Sunday spot for well over a month.

It's on BBC2 this Sunday morning, according to the radio times, and I have watched it recently on 1 Sunday at least. I get southern TV here.
