Ask a gardening advisor – with special guest Matthew Wilson

The RHS Advisory service compiled a range of seasonal gardening queries sent in by RHS members

Monday’s questions came from RHS members and reflected a wide cross section of queries received by the RHS Advisory service in May. We selected some perennial problems and the most frequently asked questions for this session.

Our Gardening Advisors on Monday were award-winning landscape designer Matthew Wilson, RHS Judge and gardening expert Martin Fish, and RHS Gardening Advisors, James Lawrence and Michaela Freed.
