Claire and Steve meet at the Adhurst Estate Allotments to enjoy the autumnal sun and the last of the year’s blooms as they discuss their gardening year.

There’s still work to be done in the garden with gathering dahlias and protecting the tubers, preparing the soil for the winter and getting ready to sow garlic, onion sets, broad beans and sweet peas, amongst other jobs.

And the bare root season is coming!  Next month, we meet with the bare root experts at Greatham-based Southern Fruit Trees.

Join Claire Vennis and Steve Amos every month for a new Growing Together from Petersfield’s Shine Radio.
