"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 sweet scent of soil

It's been another busy week here at Allt-y-bela with James' organic kitchen garden course starting in earnest. He is helping me to create - even by his own admission - the single most complicated sowing and rotation plan I could possibly imagine.


Snowdrops en masse at Allt-y-bela

This is a very special time of year for galanthophiles all over the country as snowdrops flower en masse in gardens, parks and hedgerows. It’s hard to escape images of these little bulbs that dominate garden media at this time of year. Allt-y-bela is no exception.
