Decorate your Garden with Plants, plus your July checklist

There is absolutely no reason why your autumn/winter garden should not look as good, if not better, than your summer display. It’s all in the planning.

Bring Colour to the Garden this Winter with Mahonia

It’s hard to imagine the winter months in our gardens without the striking yellow blooms of Mahonia ‘Charity’ or Mahonia ‘Winter Sun’. Long racemes of golden flowers produced over evergreen spiky foliage catch the rays of the low winter sun and reflect the light like a beacon in the winter garden. The shiny green leaves...

Your April Garden Checklist with Anne McKeon

April Checklist
Spring is well and truly here and spring cleaning both indoors and outdoors is the order of the day. My main priority these days is what happens in the garden not in the house and seeing plants coming to life after the winter is a pleasure that is hard to match, for a gardener anyway. I...
