Excitingly I have features in four of the September glossies: In Flowers from the Fields in Country Living I profile Jane Edmonds, an incredibly talented flower grower and florist who lives near me here in Somerset. With a background in nursery growing and garden design she had the perfect set of skills when she decided to start growing and arranging cut flowers.
Small Wonder in The English Garden features fabulous York Gate garden on the edge of Leeds that I was lucky enough to visit for a third time with my camera last summer. This classic of twentieth century garden design has so much to teach everyone with a garden, whatever size and shape. It has style, class and an atmosphere all its own, carefully folded into just one acre, like some intricate piece of origami.
Designing with Nature in Homes & Gardens goes to show that a wildlife friendly garden does not have to sacrifice design. Farlands, near Tenbury Wells in Worcestershire, the home of a couple of landscape designers, buzzes with invertebrates in late summer.
And finally Border Lines in Country Homes & Interiors visits Upper Tan House in Herefordshire, a relaxed country garden with good bones. It's so satisfying to see these stories in print, an acknowledgement and appreciation of the creativity and skill that exists in horticulture across the country.
