Summer is upon us at last! The warmer weather seems much overdue this year, so Lucy and Saul are relieved to at last see the abundance of growth that this season can bring. This explosion requires selective intervention and management, so get ready for lively conversations about how these two experienced Head Gardeners keep calm - and cool - during the garden's peak period.

If you do one thing this weekend, complete a project to entice pollinating insects into your garden. That's the message that the @BBCRadio2's #BigBeeChallenge want to spread, so Lucy and Saul are very happy to oblige. In this special episode, we interview wildlife gardening guru, Kate Bradbury, to glean some expert tips on how to encourage bees onto your plot.
