The autumn series returned with a look at autumn planting - nature's time for renewal. There's a bumper harvest this year and Paraic discussed harvesting fruit in general. He gave tips on ripening and storing apples, plums and nectarines and ways to promote flowering and fruiting where yields are low. There was advice on sowing laurel hedging and other plants from cuttings, and hydrangeas featured with Annabelle, Phantom, Bobo and Vanilla Freeze some of the varieties highlighted. Listeners questions included how to control Thuja blight, sowing lawns with dogs and children in mind, treating vegetable plants for caterpillars, feeding pampas grasses and suggestions for climbers for large bare walls.
