Chris Collins meets Garden Historian, Caroline Holmes

This month, Sarah is taking a well-earned break and her colleague Hannah has stepped in to present this episode with Chris. They chat about September in the organic garden, take time to reflect on the successes and failures of the year so far. Chris shares his advice for new growers to keep a passion for their new-found hobby going throughout the year, and they also talk all things houseplants, including how valuable they are as therapeutic greenery for those with little or no outside space.

Chris enjoys an enthusiastic chat with garden historian and GO ambassador, Caroline Holmes, who shares her passion for gardens through history, and in particularly Monet’s garden. Chris and Caroline also get very excited about dung!

Finally, Anton and Chris answer questions from members covering the challenge of bare soil, seed saving and whether woodlice are friends or foes.
