Seen at the Festival of the Tree

...if you would be happy all your life, plant a garden ~ Chinese proverb

Garden Visits

A fun scene from Special Plants nursery near ChippenhamI've written lots of articles about the gardens I've visited, which have their own label (Garden Visit), but this can be quite irksome to search through to find what you'd like to read. 

This page is designed to make that search a little easier. Within each article you'll find further links to give you more information on the garden featured.

At the end of this page, I've added some links to more general websites, blogs and books which you may find useful.




You may also like my posts on visits to shows such as Chelsea, or the talks I've attended.

Malvern Show has a blog all of its own as we had a bloggers get together there one year. It's a great resource for anyone planning to visit the show or its autumn cousin.
