While Steve tends to his award-winning dahlias, Claire visits this year’s Chelsea Flower Show.

Saving oak trees, forestry education, gardening with no limits, encouraging young gardeners, celebrating heroines of horticulture, admiring Alitex’s trade stand, head gardener advice and cinnamon buns are on the agenda in this eclectic edition of Growing Together.

With thanks to Geraint Richards, Head Forester at the Duchy of Cornwall, author Robert Penn, Drag Queen Gardener, Skinny Jean Gardener, Pollyanna Wilkinson, Nelly Hall, Julia Parker and Ben Pope.

Growing Together is sponsored by Alitex Glasshouses, modern Victorian glasshouses, based in South Harting.
