The Beechgrowers 2022

The Beechgrowers 2022

The Beechgrowers 2022 returned in week 2 14/04/2022 of
Beechgrove 2022 which was shown on BBC2 Scotland and then repeated on BC2 and on the iPlayer.

Last year the introduction of The Beechgrowers 2021 was not popular with some viewers but this filled the gap left by the presenters being unable to travel due to the Covid-19 restrictions.

Broadcasting from their own gardens and recorded by themselves the Beechgrowers shared tip and advice and we followed them through the growing season.

Scotland as with the rest of the United Kingdom has a diverse array of climates and growing conditions and by having The Beechgrowers from all over Scotland shows how you can adapt and cope and still have a productive and successful garden wherever you live.

This years Beechgrowers come from as far apart as Dumfries to Orkney.

Graham Anderson

Graham  is a retired mechanical engineer from Dumfries and he will be sharing with us his Chilli growing in his Polytunnel as well as planting a wildflower area.

Graham started growing his own food during lockdown due to Covi-19 restrictions and like other new growers is now hooked on growing his own.

Sanne is from Orkney which is know for it being very windy and she is going to plant a wind hedge to help protect her plants at her 10 x 5 plot at a community garden.
