This month, Claire and Steve are at the Adhurst Estate Allotment early in the morning along with lots of singing birds.

Steve has so many dahlia plants he doesn’t know what to do with them and is even trying out Claire’s more ‘relaxed’ approach to gardening.  

With recommendations for specialist growers and advice for how to dry out tulip bulbs, look after roses, grow happy and healthy courgette and pumpkin plants and to help alleviate  hay fever symptoms, they also talk about various growing competitions at the allotment and look forward to the coming harvest.

Take time to relax in your garden and enjoy your hard work – and please let us know if you have a rhubarb gin recipe.  We’d love to try it out!

Claire and Steve would love to hear from you! You can contact them on 01730 555500 or email 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.
