Amateur Gardener: March #1

We meet the gardeners and introduce the allotment before kicking off the season with the first sowings of vegetables and flowers.

Sean visits an allotment site where the landlords may increase the yearly rent from £67 to £200/£400 and takes time to visit Charles Dowding to discuss the no-dig method. Geoff feeds his chickens up after a cold winter. Claire takes shelter in the greenhouse on a rainy day and starts her vegetable year with shallots. In the kitchen Jonathan uses potatoes as a replacement for flour while Kris gets his flower year off in his conservatory.

First shown on Sky television Sunday March 6, 2011.
