It’s been a strange gardening year – freezing cold, soaking wet and then hot hot hot!

This month, Ann-Marie and Claire talk about what can still be grown in the garden, collecting seeds for next year’s growing or as gifts for friends, and keeping your kit clean – while wearing a bikini in the sun preferably. 

They’re encouraged by the growth of community gardens with the wellbeing that comes from it, so evident in our own Petersfield Community Garden.

And Ann-Marie gives an insight to what delights the Chelsea Flower Show hopes to bring this September – and it sounds magical. 

Growing Together from Petersfield’s Shine Radio – Saturday mornings at 7, Monday evenings at 6 and Wednesday evenings at 8 – and always online at or on your favourite podcast app.
