Garden designer and television presenter Joe Swift has taken on a new job as volunteer Ambassador of the National Garden Scheme.  The charity which sees members of the public open their gardens to the public has raised millions for nursing and caring charities.  Joe Swift spoke to Ken Crowther about his role.

Food writer and television presenter Mary Berry is known for her baking but she also is a great supporter of the National Garden Scheme, where people open their gardens for charity.  She has recently been named as their new President taking over from Joe Swift.  Mary has opened her garden for over 20 years as she told Ken Crowther.

Garden designer, journalist and television presenter Joe Swift is a very busy man with his diary booked full of garden shows this summer including Chelsea, Hampton Court and Southport.  Despite being so busy he still has time to do some designing.  He recently worked with the fashion designer Zandra Rhodes on a project in Bermondsey has he told Ken Crowther.
