Always surprised how far and wide the interest in English gardens is. Nice to see Yvonne Marks’ garden at Crowmash, Kent, appear in Hungary.
Snowdrops for a winter garden – Galanthus plicatus ‘Bayhlam’ and Galanthus ‘Wasp’
Three gardens from last summer 1. Caroline Critchlow’s lovely garden in the Orkneys. Part of BBC Gardeners’ World garden of the year competition. 2. Caroline Cassell’s garden, Waltham Abbey – from Gardeners’ World Gardens of the Year 2017 3. Waterlily, Aberystwyth – from Gardeners’ World Gardens of the Year 2017
Alys Fowler on her allotment, 2.11.12. Some test shots taken whilst playing with ideas, talking and drinking tea. I don’t think any from this small set have been used, but I’ve always been fond of them.
Close-up of waterlilies in the main lake at Monet’s garden, Giverny. Unknown varieties – records of the plants in the garden were not as detailed as I normally find in UK gardens.
The Long Border at Great Dixter, East Sussex. Originally the family home of Christopher Lloyd, it is one of the best known gardens in the UK. Great Dixter is managed by Fergus Garrett, who started working as Head Gardener under Christopher Lloyd in 1992.

Nice to have the cover of this month’s Gardeners’ World magazine, with their Gardens of the Year competition issue. Congratulations to all the lovely folk I met en-route in a slightly mad 8 day dash across the UK from Kent, Hampshire, Wales, up to the Lake District, Scotland and finally to the Orkney Islands. And thanks for all the 5am cups of coffee, bacon sandwiches and chocolate biscuits to keep me going…I promise, I wasn’t a judge!
