Relaxed grandeur

A structured layout and billowing planting by two knowledgeable gardeners has created a colourful haven in the Essex countryside

Sonia and Giles Coode-Adams’ jobs for early October

  1. We’re cutting back in the boarders. Anything brown is trimmed back: it makes everything look much fresher

  2. Now’s the time to prune the wisteria and the fig tree

  3. I’ve ordered my bulbs but they won’t be planted until November, because the squirrels take them if we put them in too early!
