3 FOR THE GARDEN… LANTERNS

KITTED OUT • For new gardeners

February plants • In the first of a new series, plantsperson Jimi Blake chooses some much-needed colour to brighten early spring, including a fragrant beauty worth getting down close to enjoy

WINTER SUNSHINE • This cold but thankfully short month is one Aaron is happy to forget about. But while February offers gardeners the opportunity for a well-earned rest there are still seed potatoes to order and salad seeds to sow before the onset of spring – and if like Aaron you are lucky enough to have space to overwinter citrus fruits to inject a little winter sunshine into late winter dishes

JUDYTA UBYCH • Working as assistant gardener for the City of London Corporation, Judyta’s role is to keep Nigel Dunnett’s exemplary urban plantings at The Barbican in fine form

Blank canvas • Asked to design a gallery garden from scratch, Tom Stuart-Smith has created a changing spectacle of colour

IN BRIEF

12 KEY PLANTS

WHERE TO BUY • Recommended biennial seed suppliers

A new perspective • An unusually shaped plot was the inspiration for this striking, lushly planted garden by designer Stefano Marinaz

6 key plants

Outward looking • James and Helen Basson have given a classic Provençal garden a naturalistic twist to blend with the stunning surrounding landscape

IN BRIEF

HOW TO START A micro nursery

Fleeting beauty • Phoebe Cummings’ floral sculptures are deliberately designed to disintegrate – like the flowers they depict

10 greatonline gardening courses • A new year is the perfect time to learn a new skill or even think about starting a new career, and while we may still be confined to our homes this doesn’t have to limit our ambitions. There are hundreds of courses you can study from the comfort of your own home. So whether you’re considering retraining, looking for inspiration for your pots and borders or simply want to give your houseplants some loving care, here is a round-up of some of the best online courses to try
