THE MODERN MINT BLOG
Here are three gardening blogs worth checking up on:
A blogger who began gardening on an allotment with his mum in Burnham-on-Crouch, Essex.
A ‘latecomer’ to gardening, blogs on the gardens she likes and takes great photos. Also founded the Raven Charitable Trust, providing medical care for villagers in Rajasthan.
A journalist and blogger, who also writes for the Guardian and published The Allotment Keeper’s Handbook: A Down-to-Earth Guide to Growing Your Own Food

I was asked by the European Boxwood & Topiary Society to help out with answering a common question – How to sharpen your shears? So we spent a fun day making a video, that hopefully will help you make sure you have sharp, shiny blades to do your topiary pruning with. And you can find here more examples of the topiary I make with my sharp blades.
You can get a ticket for this new talk I’m giving at the European Boxwood And Topiary Society here – TALK TICKETS It is on the 25th August at 6pm. It should be great fun and I’m very excited to be sharing some recent thoughts about topiary with people – and how it might work in a modern garden.
