With April showers few and far between last month and so many frosts, the tulips are suffering but the daffodils have been amazing, as have the muscari and Ann-Marie’s new favourite anemone Mr Fokker.  Such a gorgeous blue!

This month Ann-Marie and Claire break the rules, discuss how to prune and layer clematis and reveal a kind way to get rid of lily beetles.

With Chelsea now scheduled to take place in September, Claire finds out what plans Ann-Marie has for her show garden and Ann-Marie gives us a sneak peek of her soon-to-be opened Wisley gardens, with a virtual tour.

Growing Together from Petersfield’s Shine Radio – Saturday mornings at 7:30 and Wednesday evenings at 8 – and always online at shineradio.uk or on your favourite podcast app.
