Thomson Forrest is Janice Ross’s guest on Scotspeak 18:00 on Tuesday 9th October.

Scots’ Speak guest at 6:00pm on Tuesday 9th October 2018 is a man of the soil, Thomson Forrest who hails from Dalserf in the Clyde Valley. His father, a keen market gardener grew the famous, sought after but now rarely seen, ‘Scotch tomato’. Leaving school at fifteen, Thomson worked outside on the land for fifty years using his knowledge to grow a hugely successful business at the Rosebank Garden Centre.  This show, recorded at the centre, hears Thomson describe his love of the soil as well as sharing the music which inspired him to keep digging.
