January 21, 2021

Gerald Stratford has become quite the internet gardening phenomenon over the past year, captivating the Twittersphere with photos of his giant vegetable harvests. We were thrilled to get him on the line for a chat about his new-found fame, to steal some of his expertise for producing prize-winning carrots (and keeping pesky carrot fly at bay!), and to hear about that time he chopped off his marrow flowers by accident… uh oh! Plus we’re also joined by Malcom Catlin (from our sponsor Marshalls Garden) who reveals some exciting new seed varieties for 2021. We’re kicking the new year and new series off in style!
