Summer Containers & Planting for the Future with Joe Whitehead (Head Gardener, Burghley House)

This week Joe Whitehead takes a break from Burghley's exciting walled garden project to join Alan Gray (East Ruston Old VIcarage) and Thordis Fridriksson on this week's Talking Dirty podcast. Their conversation weaves from planting up Summer containers, to why 'common' plants deserve a place in your garden, and how water conservation and planting for the future are at the heart of Joe's plans for Burghley's Walled Garden.
