Phew, where has the year gone?
I have recently been in the dying thoes of an edit on my next book Evergreen Plants, which will be released on Amazon et al in March 2012.So look out for it won't you? And did I mention my Border Plants book was shortlisted for Best Reference Book of the Year 2010. Will I top that with Evergreen Plants I wonder?
With the demise of this duty, I can now switch my undivided attention back to our landscape design practice, http://www.theopengardencompany.co.uk/
I can now get back to designing beautiful gardens once again for our clients in the South east. Not that we ever stopped. It's just that I've had to limit my time. However Mark Lockhart my fellow director is very capable and we discuss every detail as we go, books or not. Actually though typically we work in Surrey West Sussex and London, this year we've spent a fair amount of time in the Mediterranean designing some wonderful gardens and using all those plants we never get to play with in the UK because they are non-hardy.
Somebody in our small, but cheery office reminded me that that every single one of our lovely garden design clients found us by personal recommendation. It is always a minefield advertising your services as a landscape design company isn't it?
At the expense of a little smuggery, we think that's rather an accolade!
