In Beechgrove Garden episode 14 2016 : the whole Beechgrove team are taking the road to the ancient Highland fishing port and market town of Nairn. Taking advantage of the particular microclimate of the Moray Coast, the gardeners of Nairn have much to show to the Beechgrove team.
To set the scene for this special programme the team will be visiting some glorious gardens and finding out what conditions are like horticulturally in Nairn. Jim, Carole, Chris and Brian will also be hosting a Beechgrove Gardeners’ Question time and attempting to answer as many Nairn gardening queries as possible.
Jim, Carole, and Chris were not in the garden this week but were on the road infirst of three special Beechgrove Roadshow programmes this summer. It was the beginning of Julywhen the team visited Nairn and the first stop on their tour was The Bandstand to admire the stunning views across the Moray Firth to the Sutors of Cromarty and to the hills of Sutherland behind, and to give some background as to where they were.
People still come to Nairn for holidays nowadays but in the 19th century Victorians flocked to the town as they believed that the sea water here had medicinal properties.
