A small, attractively laid-out country garden striving towards year-round interest, enjoyment and relaxation through association and succession planting of trees, shrubs, herbaceous, perennials and bulbs. John's aim for his gardening is to focus on ecologically-based, wildlife-friendly planting schemes, guided by natural and semi-natural habitats. This approach is demonstrated beautifully in his garden, separated into rooms focusing on different colour schemes and styles, including a small woodland area, mixed borders and prairie-style planting.
