Alex Mitchell has a few funny tales to tell from her years of gardening, including the time that her flock of sheep ate most of her apple trees, or her realisation that a quick trip to Tel Aviv to buy lemons might actually be a more cost-effective way of obtaining citrus fruits, rather than attempting to grow her own. Plus, she can give you at least 100 ways to upcycle old tights in the garden. Listen now for all of this – and more!
