Week six of Bake Off and the bakers were taking on a challenge never before seen in the tent of piping dreams. Alison Carr was beside herself to see how Botanical Week unfolded. She live blogged the lot.

‘Three challenges inspired by nature’ is what they took on, being encouraged to reach for anything that grows to give their bakes maximum botanical taste.
