This week's guest, Mike Thurlow, discusses his eureka moment when it comes to organic gardening - which came thanks to a mishap with growing carrots! He also tells us about his yearly routine for growing show-stopping onions from seed, the wonderful act of picking and eating a sun-warmed peach straight from the tree, and why gardening is such a great stress-buster.
