    As the summer break approaches this week's programme looked back on a very successful gardening year so far and Paraic gave some recommendations for the coming weeks including the importance of blight control, feeding lawns without forcing growth and the benefits of regular deadheading. He also discussed garden design and ways that people can practically implement new ideas in their own gardens. Plants featured on today's programme included Beetroot with advice on harvesting, Hornbeam and the practice of pleaching to provide privacy, Siberian Wallflowers and Ginkgo Biloba, while topics discussed ranged from balling of roses to june drop and trimming whippy growth on fruit trees. Paraic also responded to listeners questions on greenfly on lettuce, turning pink Hydrangeas blue, the lifecycle of Pond Lillies, taking cuttings from Cottage Roses and reseeding lawns.
