Gardeners' World - Summer Inspiration
  • Gardeners' World | Flamborough Cliffs

    Our gardens offer so much at this time of year - after all our work earlier in the year it is now rewarding us with beds full of blooms, vegetables and berries. However, there is still plenty to be getting on with to ensure the beauty continues right through to the autumn and Monty Don has plenty...

  • Gardeners' World | Surrey

    Monty opens the program with the menu sequence, and then records, for future reference, the relationship of colour and texture in the borders of the Jewel Garden. Monty points out the colors between Dahlia 'Arabian Night' and the Cosmos sulphureus, Bright Lights and refers to his favorite plant ...

  • Gardeners' World | West Cornwall

    Previously Monty had said that the risk of blight was very minor in a greenhouse. But low and behold, blight has swept through his greenhouse. He first shows his potato blight, the fungus which can turn potatoes to mush and completely defoliate them, and it affects tomatoes because tomatoes are...

  • Gardeners' World | Hestercombe Gardens

    For many gardeners, the beginning of September is the start of a new gardening season and, with this in mind, Monty recommends vegetables to sow now for winter cropping.

  • Gardeners' World | North Yorkshire

    Monty is in the Dry Garden and is cutting away anything that doesn't look good now because as a rule - if it doesn't look good now, it's not going to get any better over the coming months. Monty talks through plants such as aquilegias, cardoon leaves that could come off, the mullein, umbellifers...

  • Gardeners' World - Mrs Popple

    Monty is in the Jewel Garden to plant up a very large pot. Previously he has planted up the pots with tulips and wallflowers and last year he had dahlias and cannas. Today he is planting two types of fuchsias and will fill the gaps with vincas. Carol Klein is at home at Glebe Cottage and tells us...

  • Gardeners' World - Border Plants

    Monty demonstrates how a radical chop of some border plants now can rejuvenate them for later in the season. He starts off with looking at the alliums which he pulls up as they need space. Next he moves onto the hardy geraniums which are still flowering which he also cuts back. He advises to cut ...

  • Gardeners' World - Greenhouse

    Monty is in the greenhouse to check on his tomato trial that he started a few months ago by using three different methods. The trial was to see which technique produced the best possible taste and quality fruit. The variety he planted was 'Gardener's Delight'. The results so far are as follows - ...

  • Gardeners' World - Siberian Wallflower

    Monty lifts his wallflowers from the seed bed to plant them out to give them more room. Some are flowering which they shouldn't be but this is due to the very hot weather we have had this summer. Monty advises to cut them back if they are flowering. He plants them in the veg garden as they are me...

  • Gardeners' World - Seed

    Monty is already thinking about next year which means now is the time for him to start collecting seed. He collects seed from astrantia and silene and stores them in brown paper bags. He bought the silene from the Malvern Show in May which started the planting off and now he can keep it going by ...
