As usual, Monty Don is at Longmeadow where he sets out his plans for the coming year. This week, Monty reviews the effects the winter weather has had on his garden.
As the gardening year gets underway at Longmeadow, Monty is tidying up his ornamental grass border, pruning roses, and planning for a summer scent.
On a frosty morning, Monty starts the programme in the vegetable garden and clears and composts the remains of Cavolo Nero, black Tuscan Kale, which Monty sowed last Spring and has enjoyed the crop for almost a year.
The first big gardening weekend of the year gets underway with Monty dividing perennials and giving plenty of tips for how we can kick-start the garden for the season ahead.
Monty takes an initial look at his beehive and supplements their diet with some sugar fondant in case we have a burst of bleak weather and spring flowers are scarce.
Monty starts a new project - a cutting garden - and gives advice on what to grow to provide plenty of cut flowers for gorgeous summer bouquets.
