BBC gardening: West Linton woman to appear on Beechgrove

A BORDERS gardener is set for regular appearances on a national TV show.

Diana Yates, from West Linton, is taking part in ‘The Beechgrowers’ – a new strand in the BBC Scotland programme Beechgrove.

The new series will feature six locations around Scotland.

During the shows, Diana will be showcasing the therapeutic side of gardening.

Series producer Gwyneth Hardy said: “The six bring a range of different experiences of gardening, from all corners of Scotland and we hope that it will inspire others to get growing.

“And we can’t wait to see Diana’s films.”

Beechgrove started back on the BBC Scotland channel on April 1, but it is also shown across the UK on BBC Two on Sunday mornings.

The new strand ‘The Beechgrowers’ will start in the episode which goes out on Thursday, April 15 at 8pm on the BBC Scotland channel.
