Hit BBC Scotland gardening show Beechgrove Garden returns in 2019 for its 41st series!

Every year the cast of gardening know-it-alls return to our screen to give us all the tricks and tips to take our gardens to the next level.

But who will feature on the 2019 show? Here is everything you need to know about the cast…

Beechgrove 2019, S41 E2

Jim McColl

Jim is the longest-serving presenter on the show and has been a lead presenter since it started in 1978!

This will be his last series, as he is set to retire after forty years of working on Beechgrove.

George Anderson

Coming from a long line of gardeners, George has over fifty years of experience working as a gardener. You could say the ‘green thumb’ runs in the Anderson family gene!

George and Jim have become quite the double team on Beechgrove Garden, so we’re sure he’ll be sad to see his co-presenter leave.

But George will be staying on for sure!

Carole Baxter

Carole has also been a long-standing cast member, having made her screen debut back in 1986.

When Carole saw the advert for a behind-the-scenes gardener on a TV show, she didn’t even own a telly and had never even seen Beechgrove Garden!

Because of the times, Carole was shocked to be asked to be a TV presenter and her initial response was: “You’ve got to be joking; I’m a female!” But Carole slipped into the job easily, with her natural charm and knack for gardening winning over audiences everywhere.

Kirsty Wilson

Kirsty is the newest addition to the show, joining for the 2019 cast!

She is a Herbaceous Supervisor at the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh and is bringing a breath of fresh air to the cast this season.

Brian Cunningham

He is one of the younger presenters on the show, having joined back in 2015.

But Brian certainly has an extensive and impressive career working in horticulture, being the head gardener for Scone Palace!
