Veteran garden show presenter Jim McColl popped into a garden outside Carluke last week as filming took place for the next edition of Beechgrove Garden.

The garden created from scratch by James Findlay at Yieldshields Road, featured in the Gazette last year after a visitor contacted us.

James’ daughter Cheryl felt it was due recognition and last year contacted the organisers of Ayr Flower Show, who in turn contacted the BBC’s Beechgrove Garden.

Now it will appear in the show to be broadcast this Thursday, September 7. when James, aged 76, explaines to Jim McColl how he extended the garden and the work that goes into it.

“This year it is probably the best it has ever looked,” added Cheryl.
