Alan Titchmarsh is planting up a bed with wallflowers, pansies and tulips. Wallflowers are brassica family members so are susceptible to Club Root. If you have acid soil its worth adding some lime. Tulip bulbs shouldn't be planted until November, which reduces the risk of Tulip Fire. 1/5 Switched On 540 Cookery 580 TV 600 Booker Cookbook Showbiz N fstTV

Alan digs up a large purple Banana, ENSETE 'Maurelii', and pots it up, ensuring the roots are surrounded by compost leaving no air pockets. Alan has decided to leave out his Cannas together with the semi-hardy Banana, Musa basjoo, but these will need a good mulch of manure to lag them from the winter weather. 2/5 Switched On 540 Cookery 580 TV 600 Booker Cookbook Showbiz N TV

The main advantage in sowing them now, is that the plants should be strong to plant out in spring. Alan plants the seeds in 5" terracotta pots, which he fills with peat free compost. Sweet peas have a tough seed coat, and need to be soaked overnight in cold water, which softens the seed coat and speeds up germination. 5/5 Switched On 540 Cookery 580 TV 600 Booker Cookbook Showbiz N bstTV
