With the recent heatwave in July, Claire and Steve discuss the effect the hotter weather is having on the garden and gardeners alike.

Claire has a mystery muncher in her garden, Steve muses over his rambling runner beans and they inspire each other with plans for Autumn tulip bulbs!

There’s also advice on what to do with wildflower meadows, taking salvia cuttings, a blackcurrant vodka recipe and Steve treats us to a live carrot-picking from his Carrot Project as he takes a peek at how they are growing.

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