This well-manicured paradise in south London features dense formal planting with a ‘decidedly bouffant’ look!
Owner Caroline Annesley’s gardening tips:
Don't worry about doing things at the wrong time of year. I was comforted by Christopher Lloyd's view that it usually doesn't matter, so if you feel like it, do it.
Go out at night with a torch and get rid of slugs by cutting in half with secateurs – disgusting but effective and less disgusting than crushing them underfoot.
I believe in feeding the soil. Lots of organic matter helps break up the clay and improves drainage, especially in winter.
