Vivi’s Kitchen Garden 205: High summer in the kitchen garden.

It’s the middle of summer and temperatures are soaring… I take to the garden early in the day to give all my precious plants a drink and do a few odd jobs before it gets too hot. The quality of light is beautiful…..the heat slows me right down…….it’s the perfect time to simply look and enjoy…..

Vivi’s Kitchen Garden 203: Answering your questions – part one (and outtakes).

It’s a long one so grab a cup of tea and get yourself comfortable. I visit with Richard & Paul to film answers to some of your questions…….we had so many great questions we had to make a second part which will be on R&P’s channel in a couple of days. They are such easy, wonderful company……but sometimes that makes it hard to film… there are a few outtakes added at the end!

Vivi’s Kitchen Garden 202: Climbing squash, climbing beans, climbing tomatoes – they’re all starting to climb.

After a week away from the garden there are some good displays of growth…..which means lots of little jobs to get on with including training and tying in. Lovely, gentle summer jobs.

I will be at RHS Malvern Autumn show on the 29th of September along with Jane Kelly, Huw Richards & Liz Zorab. For discounted tickets (available until August 2nd) use the code YouTube10 when booking at
