Summer is upon us at last! The warmer weather seems much overdue this year, so Lucy and Saul are relieved to at last see the abundance of growth that this season can bring. This explosion requires selective intervention and management, so get ready for lively conversations about how these two experienced Head Gardeners keep calm - and cool - during the garden's peak period.
In Episode 101, Lucy takes a little time out from her week to wax lyrical about her favourite crop - tomatoes. Hugely popular with amateur and professional growers alike, Lucy reminisces about her childhood and how her smallholding upbringing cemented her love for this crop. She takes a tour of her own glasshouse and vegetable garden to discuss what she's growing this year, then touches on how to thwart the main pests and diseases, with a special focus on tomato late blight.
