Helping The Honeybee
A brand new talk for 2017, Darren has always gardened with bees and other pollinators in mind – this talk is a bringing together of all the plants your garden needs to make sure it is nectar rich.
First presented at The Ted Hooper Memorial Lecture in 2017, for Essex Beekeepers Association, the ideas for plants in the talk will be written down by Darren ready to be published by Northern Bee Books in 2018.

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.
