Gardeners World episode 16 2020: At Longmeadow, Monty gives tips on how to keep the garden looking good as well as how to maintain the vegetable plot for continuous crops.



 

 

From her garden in Devon, Carol Klein gives a comprehensive and seasonal guide to getting plants for free and this time she turns her attention to popular climbers like honeysuckle and clematis. In Brighton we return to the urban garden of Kate Bradbury to discover how it is being used by wildlife, a year after she turned a barren plot into a thriving habitat.

Last summer, Rachel de Thame visited Kiftsgate Court Gardens in Gloucestershire to find out about the three generations of female gardeners who have made their mark on the garden. And there’s a second chance to see an Essex garden full of quirky detail and inspiration, despite a distinct lack of space. We also find out what gardeners up and down the country have been getting up to in their gardens in our viewers’ videos.

Honeysuckle

Besides the much loved climbers, honeysuckles include a number of useful shrubs. Some of them are evergreen and ideal for hedging or topiary pieces, others are winter flowering and highly perfumed. The climbing honeysuckle is a classic addition to a romantic cottage garden or even a wildlife haven. Plus, don’t forget honeyberry – the edible honeysuckle, which can be used to make a tasty homemade jam.

Shrubby honeysuckles (Lonicera) are well suited to a woodland garden, with their sometimes scented flowers, attractive autumn fruit and unkempt habit. Plant early-flowering bulbs under shrubby honeysuckles for a late winter pick-me-up. Evergreen forms are suitable for creating low-growing hedges.

Deciduous or evergreen, shrubby honeysuckles can be upright and sprawling or compact and low-growing. Small delicate flowers (often with fine fragrance) are mainly produced in winter or spring, and are generally creamy-white (some are pink, lilac or yellow).

Clematis

The ‘Queen of Climbers’, clematis produce masses of flowers in a wide variety of shapes and colours. With careful selection, it’s possible to enjoy their blooms throughout the year, and with plants suited to growing on walls and fences, up obelisks and pergolas, into trees, in containers and even in a mixed border, it is easy to see why these versatile plants are one of the most popular in gardens.

One of the most popular garden plants, clematis produce masses of flowers in a variety of shapes and colours. From vigorous to compact climbers, as well as herbaceous types for a sunny border, here’s everything you need to know to grow these plants in your garden.

Clematis are tolerant of a range of soil types, but grow best in deep, fertile, moist but well-drained soil. On heavy or sandy soils, dig-in some organic matter, like leaf mould or well-rotted manure, before planting to improve soil structure.
