"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

Spring pruning

You know that spring is on the way when you seem to experience several seasons in a day; today has been just such a day in the garden here at Allt-y-bela.


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.
