On this episode of Scran Rosalind takes a trip to Weston Linton to meet Diana Yates and visit her beautiful garden at Greenfields.
Diana tells Rosalind all about how she came to live there and how, in recent years, a new gardening hobby has led her to a different career for her in broadcasting and now as an author of her first book 'Growing at Greenfields'.
Diana shares her passion for growing, flowers, fruit, veg and more and the labour of love it's been creating an idyllic kitchen garden.
She offers listeners some advice around what you should be sowing this time of year and how to manage the hectic schedule of a flourishing garden.
Some may say Scran is experiencing an identity crisis as this could potentially be a gardening show as well as a food and drink one but you're in for a real treat with this episode as Diana candidly shares her life story and how the challenges she has faced inform her success as a gardener, author, broadcaster, seamstress, mother and more.
We’d love to hear from you for the next season’s episodes.
