In the first Gardeners' Corner of Winter, David Maxwell visits a new community garden on the site of Hydebank Wood College and Women's Prison. He meets the Deputy Governor Tom Ferguson who says the garden helps rehabilitate those reaching the end of their sentence. David also heads to Belvoir Forest to talk to the RSPB about feeding garden birds and he speaks to Maeve Bell from the Irish Garden Plant Society about Mahonias which were born and bred in Northern Ireland. Also in the programme, David goes for a walk at Mount Stewart with Head Gardener Neil Porteous who tells him about the work under way to completely replant the Mairi garden.
