"Arne Maynard is one
of the most talented
garden designers
working in Britain
today. Whether in the
city or in the depths
of the country,
his gardens are a
magical combination
of architecture and
romance, the classic
and the contemporary,
and relate to their
surroundings in subtle
ways." Tricia Guild

The bones are laid bare

I have been at Allt-y-bela for five months now and each month has brought a new set of surprises. As summer slowly turned to autumn the light changed and plants slowed down. This season, the garden is somehow feeling more intimate.


Autumn musings

Autumn tends to be characterized in the garden by clearing and tidying away before winter; hedges get clipped, fallen leaves cleared and herbaceous beds cut back.


Garden Courses

We are delighted to announce the first of our 2015 garden courses, a study of the Dutch Masters and floral workshop. We will be adding further course details to the website over the coming weeks - they make perfect presents for family, friends, or yourself!
