    Barricaded against the builders

    Every gardener knows that builders and gardens are not the best of companions.  With this in mind, we have potted up and moved all our favourite plants and protected them behind paling barricades.  As well as putting on a new roof (super insulated) we are having the part of our house that resembles a village hall clad with weatherboarding (also super insulated).  The end result will look a lot prettier as well as being a lot warmer.  It is also an opportunity for replanting – fourteen years on I have a much better idea about what does and doesn’t grow in the different areas of the garden.

    Stripped for action
