I am creating a new and exciting town garden in the lovely microclimate of my walled garden in sunny Eastbourne. It will be a larger version of the old Cutting Garden at Buckle Cottage that so many of you miss. This one will be better laid out, fuller and bigger -grass doesn't get a look in! I am busy planning, hard landscaping (lovely brick paths), experimenting and digging. We are documenting it all for publication next year -in detail.

In the meantime I update the school's Facebook page most days and share lots of lovely garden and floristry links there as well as what we are up to at the school. Do please 'Like' us and feel free to add comments, ask questions etc I will reply to them all. This is where all the latest news will be posted.


I am also really enjoying the daily journey that is Twitter! I find it inspiring, interesting and a huge benefit to business -have a look and see what you think, you can see what I've written without joining by going to:



We will be at Firle Garden Show (18th/19th/20th April) again this year -do come and say hello and watch one of the twice daily demonstrations.
