- This month, we take a visit to Belcombe Court which combines classical parkland with a contemporary walled garden. In spring this garden is planted with rows of tulips with the list of cultivars grown reading like a roll call of the most prized and sought-after varieties. We explore the garden and outline 24 of the key specimens it offers.
- Matt Collins, head gardener at the Garden Museum, visits a very modern meadow in a compact garden in Kent. Flower rich, this garden’s design is informed by a love of nature, wildlife and conservation, and has been inspired by visits to British nature reserves to see wildflowers and wildlife alike.
- Jimi Blake of Hunting Brook Gardens chooses 10 early spring plants for dappled shade.
- Jenny Barnes, head gardener at Cottesbrooke Hall offers a practical guide to making handcrafted plant supports. Using raw materials sourced from the garden or locally, they are beautifully structural even before plants come into growth.
- And find out why Bluebell Arboretum & Nursery in Derbyshire is one of the best places in the UK to source unusual trees and shrubs.
- Plus the gorgeous garden features we’re famous for, all to be inspired by in this month’s magazine.
