Holland Park Gardens isn’t just for joggers

I'm not sure where the line is on when a green space in London is a park or a garden. Let's say, if you see joggers = park, if you see groups of pensioners = garden. I used to work in Holland Park and remembered it as much more of...

The Vegetable Gardener & the Juicer

You'll use it for a bit and then it'll be shoved in the cupboard, they said. Next to the spiralizer and the Nutribullet, they said. Well, I've got news! I do use my juicer, and it's never been busier than it is at the moment. As a veg gardener, I feel...

Nobody puts Bacopa in the corner…

To be fair, nearly everyone puts Bacopa (Sutera cordata) in a corner. It's a bushy, trailing plant and often stuffed in hanging baskets as a filler or backdrop for more look-at-me flowers. But not in my garden...

Hello. My name is Sarah and I’m obsessed with my tomatoes…

Amanda loves a Padron Pepper

A few years ago we (Amanda + Me) were sitting in a place called Sam's Brasserie* after work at their very good happy hour. Good, because it was half price on everything between 5-7pm Monday - Thursday. So we'd order the padron peppers, oysters (I know!) and...

The Only Way is Myddelton House Gardens

Look out Kew! There's a new favourite garden in town, and when I say town I mean it, as it's in London. Well sort of. Enfield. Which is on the Essex/Waltham Forest border. But you can get there with an Oyster card, so that must...

The Chelsea Physic Garden & the Almond Bakewell Tart

The weather can make a garden visit, the weather and time. Neither of these were totally on our side, as we visited this garden which is tucked away in the middle of totally posh Chelsea, only a 15 minute walk from Sloane Square. Walled gardens always feel a...
