Plant fanatics club together, birds in your garden part two. (Ep 120: Jan 2018)
Are you dotty about dahlias, fanatical about ferns or ardent about alpines? Then why not join a plant society? In this episode we meet a band of enthusiasts who are keen to share a love of plants with others and help new gardeners grow their favourite plants. Plus part two of our mini-series on attracting birds to your garden.
Special episode: Highlights of 2017
We look back at the best bits of 2017 including the Feel Good gardens at Chelsea, a brand new flower show at Chatsworth and groundbreaking RHS research on gardening in a changing climate. Plus botanist James Armitage meets an incredibly ancient plant in his latest Wisley Plant Encounter.
Episode 119: Seasonal help and advice, winter bird watching and Wisley's great Laboratory is reborn
The gardening advisors gather to solve queries on what you can prune now, whether you can plant trees in winter and how to protect bay trees from cold weather. Resident wildlife expert Helen Bostock meets Adrian Thomas from the RSPB to find out which birds come to Britain in winter and how gardeners can encourage our feathered friends. Plus a look at the incredible transformation happening to Wisley's iconic Laboratory building, and the science team discuss two emerging threats to a traditional Christmas favourite, the chestnut.

We visit a thriving community garden in an unlikely spot close to the M1 in Bedfordshire, and speak to local residents and volunteers who say it has changed their lives. Meanwhile, Wisley's curator Matt Pottage meets life-long conifer fan Adrian Bloom who encourages gardeners to take another look at these much-maligned plants.
Episode 117: Honey what's that fungus? Fruity dilemmas, gardens to visit and Plant Encounters
Our trusty team of gardening experts answers questions on growing rhubarb, pears and strawberries.
