17a "Coterie including private group" (6) **P*E*
13d "Apply scheme to get in sought-after Swiss cheese perhaps" (5,5) *O***, P*A*T - I feel the second word must be plant. Any ideas ? Thanks

what has it to do with swiss cheese ? Normally the DT Saturday crossword is quite a bit easier than the rest of the week, but this clue is something else !!

A Swiss cheese plant is a house plant.
Sorry for the lack of explanation in my first answer.
