The Beechgrove team take the high road to the beautiful Howe of Cromar on the edge of the Highlands for a special Beechgrove Roadshow. Along the road we host a Q&A evening with no shortage of questions from the audience and an abundance of fascinating answers from Jim, Carole, George and Chris.
George visits Anne Harper’s beautiful garden, close beside the river in Aboyne, to see her collection of Scottish cooking apples and a huge border of architectural plants for people to admire from the bridge.
Jim goes to the Tarland Community Garden, an exciting new venture, to find real community spirit with gardeners generous with their time and eager to help others.
The Beechgrove Garden is a gardening programme, which started on 14 April 1978. The original plot of land used was the small area of garden attached to the BBC studios in Beechgrove Terrace, Aberdeen. Due to its small size, the programme’s popularity and the fact the garden had been transformed several times over, a new area of ground to the west of Aberdeen was acquired for the programme by Tern Television who have produced the series since 1992.
