The Alnwick Garden

The Alnwick Garden in Northumberland is is one of my favourite gardens as it has so much to offer visitors, with so many different features. From the cherry orchard to the walled ornamental garden, the grand cascade to the poison garden, the serpent garden to the rose garden, there’s something to see and gain inspiration from at any time of the year.

Piet Oudolf’s Garden, Hummelo

I was lucky enough to visit the private garden of renowned Dutch garden designer Piet Oudolf at his home in the Netherlands.  Piet Oudolf is one of the leading figures of the “New Perennial” movement in garden design.  His designs use drifts of perennials and grasses to create stunning naturalistic landscapes providing year round interest – truly inspirational!

Piet and Anja Oudolf closed their garden to the public in October 2018.  I feel very privileged to have had the opportunity to visit this amazing place.
