Beechgrove is on at 7:30pm on Wednesday 30th July on BBC2 Scotland and on Sunday 3 August at 09:50am on BBC2 network. 

George and Carole investigate the shallots and onions that they planted in autumn last year and compare yield and health between growing them in Beechgrove and 120 miles south in George's allotment in Edinburgh where they have been struggling with onion rot.

Jim revisits Aden Allotments near Mintlaw. Jim is following the allotmenteers in their first year of production and this week he returns for a progress report and it is spectacular. Jim is inspired by a no dig organic plot and finds the secret of a very early harvest of Duke of York potatoes.

Carole visits Rosanna and John Clegg in their gorgeous garden at Muir of Ord. Aultgowrie Mill is an 18thC converted water Mill and it is set in gardens and woodland river walks of 13 acres. Features include a wooded island, a half-acre wildflower meadow and a wildlife pond, all with outstanding views of the surrounding hills. John and Rosanna have been developing the gardens for the last 8 years with much new landscaping and planting including terraces, lawns and mixed orchard and raised vegetable beds.
