    country living fair This Friday (20th March) I will be joining herb expert Jekka McVicar and garden designer Lucy Summers at the Country Living Fair in Islington for two Q&A sessions on ‘Growing the Good Life’ and ‘Gardening for Well-Being’. It should be fun and there’s more horticultural interest too, with Lucy’s ‘Country Living’ garden at the heart of the show and the launch of a new cut-flower clematis called ‘Amazing London’. I’m not sure about the name, but name aside, clematis are becoming increasingly popular as cut flowers with C. durandii the variety most often used. They do last wonderfully well in water. The Country Living Fair runs from the 18th-22nd of March, so even if you can’t make it to our Q&As there will be lots to see (and many temptations) on the other days.
