Early Spring has arrived in Clondeglass, the garden is bursting with vibrant green foliage and majestic magnolias about to bloom. Dermot visits his friend Angela Jupe's stunning snowdrop filled garden at Bellefield House. In Clondeglass, Dermot introduces us to his friend and co-gardener for this year - Fiann Ó Nualláin - we learn of their exciting plans to create a jewelled wildflower meadow outside the walls of Clondeglass. They are also embarking on a 'Save the Spud' campaign and Fiann has plans to ensure a bountiful harvest creating practical and perennial vegetable beds. Their most ambitious new project is the creation of the Potager - an ornamental French style kitchen garden that will be planted next to the cottage. Dermot decides to enlist the help of the students of the Belvedere Gardening course in Mullingar to help with the arduous task of preparing the ground for their ambitious project. And in return he gives the guys some gardening lessons. Fiann cooks up a delicious Nettle Omelette and he and Dermot dine in front of a roaring fire in Dermot's newly-renovated gardener's cottage.
