We are now firmly in winter, and you might be thinking that Head Gardeners Saul Walker and Lucy Chamberlain are taking things easy on their respective estates. But as these latest episodes will show, the two are fervently working away as busily as ever. With jobs such as planting, pruning, clearing and renovating on the cards, Lucy and Saul are at no risk of getting cold during this chillier season. The gardening friends are also busy thinking of the year ahead, so expect plenty of discussions about the weather, biscuits, buying new equipment, mowing, spreadsheets vs. lists, (more biscuits), and what plans they have for their own private gardens.
Saul reveals that the tell tale signs of spring are emerging in Devon, whereas Lucy still waits patiently for Essex to catch up on its floral displays. Forced bulbs, new purchases and a cunning plan to thwart mice damage all get the attention of Lucy and Saul this week, as Saul admits his sticker addiction to the masses and Lucy claims that Essex mice have definitely watched Mission Impossible. The duo also discuss the excitement that visiting new gardens can bring. Saul has already begun his 2022 road trip, whereas Lucy is still sitting on the starting grid. Spring, it seems, is definitely around the corner.
