Working during lockdown

I am happy to visit your garden and discuss your requirements as usual during lockdown, maintaining social distancing.

I can also provide a design service remotely, if you phone or email me to discuss the details.

Whichever way you prefer, I am grateful for your custom and will provide the best service.



Pictures from home


Spring 2020, starting a cut flower garden and veg patch. 


The polytunnel has (so far) survived the winter gales and will be home to lots of types of tomatoes, salads, herbs and veg.  The beds outside are being brought into cultivation for sweet peas, dahlias, and annual flowers for cutting.  Last year this was a dense mass of brambles and other weeds, so hopefully they will have been killed off....

The picture on the right shows terraces below the house, just a bit overgrown!  Plenty to be done here and we're starting by clearing weeds, attacking overgrown shrubs, and replacing worn timbers.

On a recent trip to Western Australia we saw Pennisetum alopecuroides (Fountain Grass, left) naturalised through a national park and back lit by morning sun.  Stunning.

Perth botanical gardens has a whole area dedicated to Banksias and Bottlebrushes (right)
