  • Five of the Best Things to do with Home Grown Herbs

    Here are our suggestions for five brilliant (and easy) things to do with your herbs in the kitchen. Lemon balm pesto - yes really, and probably not for the kids! This has been lifted straight and unashamedly from the wonderful Sybil Kapoor's book, Modern British Food. Put  55 g of...
  • Five of the best Plants for a Garden in May

    The quince tree (Cydonia oblonga)  has to be my favourite fruit blossom. Its not quite pink, single flowers are unusually large, five petalled and are held proud from reflexed, pale green leaves. Stunning. Laburnum trees  live up to their common name of The Golden Chain Tree right now. Their extraordinary...
  • It is BEAUTIFUL Lawn... but where is the grass?

  • Cotton on to Cotoneasters

    Another plant that sings for its supper and is also looking good at this time of year are the Cotoneasters. They are a varied bunch, some growing as ground cover, some growing into standard trees but all of them are members of the rose family, all are tough (they are...
  • Looking good now and for all four seasons. Really?

    If you want a wisp of spring to hang onto at this time of year then invest in a winter flowering cherry tree (Prunus x subhirtella 'Autumnalis').  A slip of a thing, this tree is slender and slightly twiggy. Although it can grow up to 7 metres it rarely does...
  • Baying at the moon...

    Leaving the flowery lot to wax poetical about their roses and those super-full moon watchers to their nighttime vigils, the more Vorsprung Durch Technik of you may be pining after structure, clean lines, verticals and such like. The punctuation marks of this particular gardening grammar are shapely or evenly shaped...
  • David Austin Roses

    On that note, what started as a warm November has meant that my Simply Beautiful rose - a cheeky little Ashridge number for Valentine's day, tragically bought by me… for me - budded up again and despite recent frosts the flowers opened to greet the month. All of this incredible...
