Garden Designers at Home by Noel Kingsbury. Peek over the fence into some of our most respected designers own gardens and learn loads in the process. Large, small, quirky, formal, there’s something for everyone here. I loved the refreshing honesty of Lauren Springer when she says ‘We kill a lot of plants’ – it is this experimentation that means they know what to plant in their client’s gardens. Or Jacqueline van der Kloet’s work on sustainable bulb planting – ‘There should be at least six weeks when the foliage should not be shaded, good drainage is also important’. Brilliant stuff!
