News

3 FOR THE GARDEN… PICNIC BLANKETS

DIARY

KITTED OUT • For creating an edible garden

June plants • With his June selection, Jimi indulges his passion for idiosyncratic plants, from stand-out shrubs with primeval foliage to flowers that conjure a sub-aquatic realm

WATER EVERYWHERE • The once damp squib of June is becoming an increasingly dry month that sees Aaron watering crops in earnest, while also making time to plant out tomatoes, harvest broad beans and tackle weeds

Jobs for June

ASHLEY EDWARDS • Head gardener for Horatio’s Garden at the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital in north London, Ashley is nurturing a restorative space for patients and visitors

Going with the flow • In a garden designed by Anoushka Feiler, masses of flowers cascade down a hillside, running riot around hard-landscaped family areas so they are barely visible in summer

12 KEY PLANTS

Jewel in the town • A bijou garden conjured from a typical London plot relies on the partnership between owners and designer for its continued success

IN BRIEF

Bridging the gap • With the best of spring over, head gardener Matthew Reese gets to work in the Flower Garden at Malverleys, coaxing colour and interest from self-seeders, bedding and early flowering perennials until high summer takes hold

SINGLE ROSES • The modest blooms of single-flowered roses have a simplicity and perfection all of their own, as well as being easy to maintain and accessible to pollinators

PLANT PROFILE

6 key plants

Stuff of dreams • Cradled in a dip in ancient chalk downland and at one with its surrounds, this fluid Dorset garden is a sumptuous blend of romance and scent

IN BRIEF

All that glisters • Sophie Coryndon’s gilded artworks defy categorisation with their fascinating blend of techniques, materials and influences

Essentially English • In a New South Wales garden that celebrates the spirit of Great Dixter, designer Colin Blanch has recreated a little piece of England abroad
