I hope you find the information in it helpful, it has be gathered over some 30 years working in and creating private gardens. I have split the information into pages:
Technique – covers how to undertake different activities in the garden from establishing a lawn to building a timber pergola. There are also sections providing advice on estimating materials and tips on gardening, debunking garden myths and an explanation of garden terms.
Inspiration – gives suggestions for garden to visit and how they fit together in a historical context.
This page proves a source of information on the practical aspects of creating and maintain a garden and is divided into sub-pages:
How To – range of articles which provide explanations of how to under take a wide range of tasks in the garden from pruning a rose bush all the way to constructing a timber pergola.
Tips – helpful snippets of information on estimating materials, general gardening tips and converting units.
Glossary – an explanation of various terms used in this website and in gardening generally.
We all need inspiration and what better place to look than other gardens.
Gardens – details of gardens both in the UK and abroad that I have visited, and where to find them.
Time Line – places gardens and gardening in a historical context.
Gardens are all about plants and this section of the website is dedicated to them. Initially I’ve put together a series of articles about specific plants and how they reached our gardens.
Plant Histories – details specific plants and how they made there way to our gardens.
