It is difficult to pick a favourite and so instead let me share a few of my favourite images of gardens, and areas of larger gardens, from this year’s Chelsea Flower Show.
Cleve West’s Garden won Best in Show by doing something that felt that little bit different from the other main Show Gardens; I liked the use of topiary, the structure, the contrasting stonework at the back of the garden and the richness of the planting…Continue

This year the sun shone again for Chelsea. There for just after 8am the hoards had already descended (although this year it felt like far more people were there - not far off of the 150,000 people expected for the week).

I am well aware that I have never produced (or entered for) "An Award Winning Show Garden" or paid big bucks for a stand at a recognised "Flower Show" and as a result, I may be selling myself short and not getting the exposure/leads that I need/deserve!
So, as an experiment, this year I am going to "bite the bullet" and do something similar as a gentle introduction to the "cut throat" world of…Continue
Over the past few months I've had great difficulty in finding someone to join and eventually run our garden maintenance service in the Surrey and Hampshire areas. I've always heard that finding people was the most difficult part of running a business but just assumed that the companies weren't offering enough incentives or were just understandably over picky.

The advocating of Biochar personifies a process that needs to be redressed in order to get back on track with land management that allows a future use for land sustainably. I could pick on many dubious products or techniques, but I choose Biochar here because a) it claims to be ‘green’ and b) I have seen the damage caused to soil organisms by Biochar for myself, which I can only describe as very scary.
Also it is important to note that I write this solely from personal experience of…Continue
Can anyone help. These little critters are damaging a friends Clematis, and Roses in Italy. They have sprayed with Roseclear but to no avail. To me they look like a type of aphid but hard to tell from the photos, so the Roseclear should of worked, so perhaps it's not an aphid? Any…
