I think I probably ought to stop worrying. When we first moved here, I was ever so worried about losing the overgrown garden’s romantic feel.  Then I started worrying about overplanting. Georgian architecture, cedar of Lebanon on sweeping lawns and a haha looking out to sheep beyond had quite a (albeit very mini) Capability Brown …

I don’t know what comes in to your mind when you think about a garden re-awaking after winter. Traditionally, for me, I see the bright heads of daffodils popping open, the blue haze of forget-me-nots covering the ground and the uncurling of fresh green leaf buds erupting from a skeleton of branches.

The garden has been both the bane and the medicine of my life this month. I had one of the most stressful weeks I can remember, although admittedly, it does sound a bit ridiculous writing it down. It was over a vegetable garden that I felt this immense stress. We’d asked someone to come in …

If I had a pound for everyone who said there can’t be much for me to do in the garden at this time of year…..well, I think I could probably employ an army of men, who could perhaps help me achieve at least half of my very long list of winter jobs. Of course, it’s …

I vividly remember, this time last year, walking over the little stone bridge across the stream in our new garden, upon our return from the Falklands. I remember just standing there, looking, and then my eyes welling up and a couple of tears rolling down my face. It seemed I had got over having to …

And so. The biggies. Ten this year. Here they are, in the order presented in the RHS Show guide: 1. Laurie Chetwood and Patrick Collins’s Wuhan Water Garden, China This garden “conveys a journey though the contrasting natural landscape of Hubei Province”.  I don’t know, try as I might, I just can’t engage with it …

It’s Chelsea. And if there’s one thing to tear me away from my beloved garden, this is it. It’s almost impossible to describe the pure magic of it. At 7am this morning the sun was shining over the Royal Hospital and there wasn’t a place in the world I’d rather be. But this year hasn’t …

It would be fair to say that I wasn’t overly excited about our pending trip to the Falkland Islands. Paul has these silly ideas every so often and usually if I lie low they seem to disappear. But having played the ‘maybe’, ‘we’ll see’, ‘we can have a think about it’ card for more than …
