The Amelia Project

We have to give a massive shout out to our friends at Imploding Fictions for their brand new series…

The Amelia Project

Have you had a listen yet?

Amelia Project

The Amelia Project is an audio drama podcast that offers a very special service – they can make their clients disappear, giving them the chance to start over!

The trouble is – how long can this new secret life last?

We have had great pleasure in working with Imploding Fictions, who have written this fantastic new podcast, over many years. They have supported our work at Modern Mint and always listened as we shared what we were up to in the garden.

So we would really love for you to check out their latest project, subscribe, download and most of all – listen and enjoy the goings on of The Amelia Project….

Topiary Work In Country Living Magazine

  This is the garden of our friend and topiary mentor Charlotte Moelsworth. To read more about it you can buy a copy of Country Living Magazine (December 2017 edition) and see the amazing photographs of the garden on an icy, cold morning. The shapes are truly stunning! Or you can check out more about Charlotte Molesworth here. If you do get to see the Country Living Magazine, and it inspires you to have yourself a little topiary in the garden – contact us to arrange a visit. Or buy some shears (the same shears both I and Charlotte use) and …
