Thankfully the rain has cleared and we have been able to get stuck into some work. However, i thought i would post a range of pictures from what and what i have been doing in and around Cheltenham gardens over the last few weeks.


I have been enjoying the senescence of the allium seed heads. This snail spent a few evenings hiding in here.

Inula ‘Sonnenstrhal’ and Veronicsatrum ‘Fascination’ in my garden

72 m of water source heat pump pipes

Just outside of Cheltenham, in Coberley, we were asked by a client to put in 72m of pipes for a water source heat pump which the client as having installed. The trench had to be 1m x 1m which means we shifted 72m of soil which is 115.2tons…!

Campanula carpatica


A very kind man, John Grimshaw, took me to see Sibylle Kreutzberger’s garden as featured in this months RHS Garden magazine. I have more images to post from the very inspiration evening with two of the best gardners in the country and one at of the best private gardens around Cheltenham and the Cotswolds. I like this combinations of Campanula carpatica and this yellow Oreganum vulgare ‘Aureum crispum’. Simple and a very effective ground cover. More to follow. Now i must go to the gardens.
