Winter in the UK is either mild and damp, or cold and windy - and who would want to be outside as a gardener at this time of year - well Saul and Lucy for one, as these months are some of the busiest in all of the 12. While the garden may be slumbering, Head Gardeners and their teams are beavering away on major jobs, garden renovations, cleaning and tidying the years clutter and making plans for 2024. So join us every week to see what we're up to in the cold months in our work and home gardens.
Saul and Lucy return to their usual format, as Lucy's jetlag and holiday tan start to fade. Luckily, the duo have plenty to get their teeth into this week as RHS Chief Horticulturist and podcast friend, Guy Barter, reveals his plant trend predictions for 2024. We can expect grow your own, wildlife gardening, exotic fruits, purple veg, houseplants and succulents to all keep us company on the plot in the year ahead, according to Guy - and we don't doubt him! Whether we all plant up survivalist gardens, only time will tell...
