Program Description

Peter Seabrook at Edinburgh Botanic (VG 1227) (23:45) [√√] [should be re-used at some point, although it is clearly an early spring taping due to all the rock garden plants in bloom. Mid-section in herbaceous border is light on bloom - might want to edit this down or out and just leave the alpine garden and the rock garden, which are excellent. Seabrook is great.] Black Bean soup (1:18)
