Georgie Windsor offers a slice of The Good Life every Sunday lunchtime.

It's packed to the borders with ideas for your garden and home - all with an environmentally friendly approach.

Georgie is regularly joined by one of our horticultural heroes to answer all your gardening questions.

Brian Kidd, who was a Portsmouth Parks Environment Officer for almost 50 years, Andy McIndoe and Wolfgang Bopp from Hilliers in Romsey, Alan Edmunson, chief garden designer with Bowercot Garden Designs in Lymington and freelance horticulturist David Hurrion.

Rubbish Rescue is an on-air recycling community where people with items they no longer want are put in touch with people who can give them a new lease of life.

This scheme is all about doing something for nothing, because no money is involved - in fact, not a penny is exchanged.

There's everything from garden shredders to baby grand pianos and bread makers to goldfish. Our listeners are saving the south from drowning under a sea of landfill every week.

Presenting The Good Life is right up Georgie's street. Along with husband Pete, she has had her own allotment for over three years and is a convert to the joys of 'growing your own'.

"It began with some potatoes," says Georgie. "The first year there wasn't much else, but then last year we got the poly-tunnel, we got the chickens and it started in earnest!"
