We are blessed with this garden in that it has wonderful structure lent to it by the stone walls of both the house and the garden. Over the years we have added to this structure with hedges of box, hornbeam, beech, holly and yew and a huge Portuguese laurel pyramid.
Gardening is very much in our blood. James runs a garden tour company called Border Lines, designs gardens and lectures extensively on garden history. Our own garden is gardened by us in every spare moment we have.
As well as managing his own garden and Border Lines Garden Tours, James is a garden historian and designer too. He lectures extensively on the history of garden design for NADFAS and the NACF.
