AT Hanako Flowers in West Cork, owners Hana and Klaus grow rare organic flowers to bring seasonal excitement into special events. They couple feature in the next episode of Grow Cook Eat on RTE1 on Wednesday at 7.30pm, when Karen O’Donohoe drops by. She also attempts a world first by growing purple sprouting broccoli in a container.
Back at GROW HQ, Michael Kelly gives a polytunnel masterclass, but still manages to forget his own advice about broccoli’s pest appeal. After a timely intervention, he salvages a decent crop to inspire Katie Sanderson’s BBQ Broccoli, allowing the long-standing side vegetable to take centre stage.
