Employers’ worst excuses for paying under the minimum wage have been revealed by ministers on the eve of a £1.7m advertising drive to encourage workers to check they are being paid the legal rate.

Underpaying bosses told officials that they thought the minimum wage didn’t apply to foreign workers; that they didn’t pay shop workers when there were no customers to serve; and in one case “she doesn’t deserve the national minimum wage because she only makes the teas and sweeps the floors”, according to the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy.

Why this Garden Works


Each article is presented by landscape designer, Tracy Rich, who will examine a single garden and provide design tips based on that garden's layout, materials and planting.

Tuinen Mien Ruys

Mien Ruys' own garden in the Netherlands is the ideal place to start a new series on design articles on 'Why this Garden Works'.

Lan Su Chinese Garden

Lan Su is a great example of urban garden design. Its whole purpose is to help people relax and to inspire creativity by connecting with nature, even in the centre of town. 

Hauser & Wirth Garden

The main wow factor of this garden is the large perennial meadow out the back called Oudolf Field after its famous Dutch designer, Piet Oudolf. However, the gallery complex also contains some other very interesting spaces.
