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.

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.

Take a closer look at the Nunki weeder now.

There are aisles in garden centres promising ever-greener sward, with no moss and weeds. Let there be no misunderstanding; these are chemicals that silence the soil.” Raise your mower height. Don’t cut until June. Then just once a month afterwards. Love that advice. And it is saving petrol for your mower too! This article also …
