Claudia and Andrew have a delectable house in Poynings. Claudia was very heavily pregnant with their baby Ella while getting the garden done and we had an incredible heatwave. This led to some very tight timeframes, which I secretly love, it makes me feel like a TV gardener. So while most were watching Harry and Megans wedding, I was planting up.
Claudia and Andrew’s garden needed breaking up, long thin gardens need height and visual barriers otherwise they feel like they go on forever. By adding willowy repeated soft planting, it gives a sense of enclosure but not suffocation. All the planting is very attractive to passing wildlife too, which can only be a perk.
