what a beautiful garden

We've had an email today from BBC Gardener's World asking if they can come to look at the garden to see if they want to feature it in a future programme!

Great to hear the good news that 'Gardeners World' will visit with a view to featuring your garden on television.
We enjoyed the whole experience when they came to film our garden for B.B.C 'Gardeners World' and it was so interesting to see how they put it all together.They were a super friendly team.
It was a long day- the team arrived in the morning and left at 10.30pm at night because they wanted evening views of our garden as well with the lighting on, so keep your energy levels up just in case!
Let us know how things develop with this exciting adventure!
Best wishes,

What a wonderful, colourful garden. All the colour's gone in the winter picture, but it still looks very good. Somehow a snowy or icey white garden has a beautiful apearence, there are some super white & snowy pictures i have seen here at GOY.

Can see why the GW team want to come to see you. Fabulous garden. I loved seeing the changes over the years as well as over the seasons. Gives me hope and I look forward to hearing more about it all. Good luck

Thanks, Whistonlass

Our aim is to have all-year-round interest. In planting, we play with the colours red, blue and yellow - blue of the spruce and red of the acers/oriental ornaments. Also, we have an underlying evergreen structure of "anchor" plants and interplant those with deciduous plants such as acers and azaleas. We try to vary heights, shape and form so that there is a good variety. Everything has to earn its keep and look good for a long period of time.
