Gardeners' World Episode 116 June 2012
With warm weather and little risk of frost, Monty Don is planting out his tender annual plants into a container for colour and interest all summer long. He is also busy in the vegetable garden with tips and advice on how best to grow cauliflowers and protect them so that you get to eat them before the birds and caterpillars do.
Carol Klein answers an unusual dilemma from a gardener that lives in a lighthouse and has particularly harsh, exposed growing conditions to deal with.
Garden visiting is more popular than ever in Britain, particularly over the summer months. To kick the season off we go to the tranquil Worcestershire village of Feckenham, where over 30 private gardens are getting ready to open their doors to the public.
