Another great photo: a real Jack Frost, as Linda says: This is my husband, Alan. Throughout his 30 year career in the Police, he was known as Jack. Sorry, couldn’t resist hahaha! Not had any frost in my garden so far. Regards, Linda Frost

Lorna and Rob’s garden This archway actually has three types of clematis growing on it; they are Clematis ‘Mrs N Thompson’, Clematis Montana ‘Fragrant Spring’ and Clematis Montana ‘Wilsonii’. As you see ‘Wilsonii’ has taken over and this spring gave us a fantastic show of flowers and fragrance.
Mike and Libby’s Garden Mike constructed this “jungle garden” during lockdown. The majority of plants we already had. Look who has moved in – just Polly!

Sarah’s garden in Lostwithiel. We bought this house just three years ago and it was a ‘new buils’ with all the associated problems of builders rubble dumped in what top soil there was. I spent months digging it all out and removing it, then digging in soil improver, but it was time well spent. Whenever magazines feature small gardens they are still large in comparison! At it’s widest point it is just 24 x 20 foot, but we still have room for two beds, a pond, a large shed, a patio area and a greenhouse which is stuffed full of Pelargoniums, two Tomato plants, and in winter, the Lemon Tree. The garden also has a resident hedgehog. In some ways garden on a small scale can be just as rewarding as every plant has to earn it’s keep and you have a much more intimate relationship with them all.
