As the first signs of Spring colour start to emerge, Claire and Steve head to the Adhurst Estate Allotments to record February’s Growing Together from the comfort of Steve’s allotment shed.

There’s lots of excitement as preparations start for the growing year ahead.  Steve updates on his ‘project carrot’, Claire explains why she’s wary of growing potatoes – and it’s not for the squeamish – there’s thrifty gardening tips and great advice for how to grow prize-winning dahlias.

We’d love to hear from you so do get in touch if you have a question or would just like to say ‘hello’.  We’ll also be recording at the Adhurst Estate Allotments once a month and look forward to meeting you there.

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.
