Borde Hill Garden is just outside of Haywards Heath in West Sussex in south England.  Set in over 200 acres of garden, park and woodlands it also offers view across the Sussex High Weald.  In April they are holding a Terrific Trees event, showcasing one of the Britain’s best collections of champion trees.  Rosie Atkins Chairman of the RHS woody plant committee explains more.

At the top of a windy hill in Essex you will find the RHS Garden Hyde Hall. It can also be a bit cold, meaning that some of the plants need more protection from the elements. Depending on their size they can be protected in the borders, whilst smaller plants are brought into the greenhouse as Heather Cutmore explained to Ken Crowther.

Working has been taking place at the RHS Garden at Hyde Hall to transfer the flat landscape into one that matches the surrounding landscape by introducing mounds. The work has taken over four weeks and has involved moving 17,000 tonnes of soil. RHS garden manager Andrew Lodge told Ken Crowther about some of the plants being put into the new winter garden section.
