Lesley and Wendy

Lesley and Wendy have been gardening for decades, growing everything from ornamental plants and shrubs to runner beans, even a bay tree (which apparently are notoriously difficult to grow).

    Thinking it over

    I have come to realise that much of my gardening is really just what I call ‘headology’ Standing and staring, watching and looking, to see what goes where, what is too big, what does not look happy. Really looking into the garden. So when I sit and there and do nothing, I am actually doing […]
