Lauriston Farm, Essex – Shares Available

Lauriston Farm in Essex is run by Spencer Christy along biodynamic lines.

We have long been fans of this farm, for the work they do with the land in this part of East Anglia, as well as their passion for natural beekeeping.

They are currently offering shares in the farm, to help fund the interesting and community spirited initiatives they are putting in place.

You can find out more by visiting the Lauriston Farm website here. I recommend it!


Hardy Plant Society Middlesex Talk Notes

On Monday night I gave a talk to the Hardy Plant Society Middlesex. Below are a few links for further information based on some of the ideas discussed in the talk: Real Seeds – a fantastic supplier of fruit and vegetable seeds for growers. Boxwood Caterpillar Advice – from the European Boxwood & Topiary Society. I will also write a little companion piece this winter with more information and some topiary techniques, so watch out for that on this website. Boxwood Lure & Nematodes – my preferred option for dealing with the caterpillar. Discount code for 10% off is EBTSBOX29GBZ …



Photos Of Some Recent Topiary I’ve Clipped

Some recent work over the last year or so, clipping boxwood and holly hedges, yew topiary on top and fun, organic shapes. Contact me if you need some topiary clipping and we can chat about the possibilities. Darren
