"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 best plant displays in pots tend to be tightly packed and really need daily checking. Over the summer months I watered all of the pots every day, sometimes twice a day if required...The results have been worth every minute spent.


Primula auricula care

This week I have continued the theme of catching up on jobs which I previously hadn't had time to do. The Auricula Theatre at Allt-y-bela has been one area I've been desperate to get into shape and I'm pleased to have been able to make a start.


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!
