Such attention to detail in the planting and quality of plants.......Your garden is stunning, I could almost cry.......It is like a painting, the colours are fantastic....... It reminds me so much of New Zealand....Excellent use of sculpture, complimenting the plants.....


Gillian Sarre - Notts - July 2011


Congratulations on your much deserved success at Gardeners' World Live - I thought your garden was wonderful and I am inspired by the beautiful stainless steel sculptures.  I spoke to a lady at your garden who said that I could enquire through your email about possible purchase of these?  Could you let me know any details of cost and availability of your beautiful pieces.

I have been experimenting with suitable sites for my sculptures and finally decided they needed fewer flowers and more space to been seen.  The rugged trunk is an old yellow buddlea that sadly died in the harsh winter.  But it has a lovely knarled bark so I have kept the trunk and I think it shows off the smooth steel sculptures really well.  Hope you agree.
