Gardeners’ Question Time
Format: Horticultural experts travel to a new locale in Britain each week to consult on gardening matters with a scarily informed live audience.
What you’ll hear: “Normally when I hear of sickly oleander, I immediately think oleander scale. But seeing how the leaf is nearly entirely silver, I can say it’s definitely red spider mite.”
Listen: BBC Radio 4 or at bbc.co.uk/programmes.
Can you recommend some good sources for buying seeds and offer some tips for starting plants from seed?
