We've just had an open day for the local National Trust and had 320 visitors. We have another open garden weekend on 9 and 10 August. We also have BBC Gardeners' World filming next week - they're following the garden throughout the seasons and it should be televised in a Christmas Special. No time for holidays this year with seven open days and at least five filming days. One day we'll be able to relax and stop dead heading and titivating!

Your garden is breathtaking. Did you do all the work yourself? How long did it take?

Yes, despite busy, full-time, jobs we do all the work ourselves. We came here 26 years ago and had 4 children in five years. The early years were spent providing a garden for them to enjoy. They have wonderful memories of imaginative play and lots of social events with all their friends. We started to relandscape the garden in 1992 - starting with the upper garden. As the children got older they lost interest in "their" lawn at the bottom of the garden so we relandscaped that in 1995 (see our blogs). Most of the garden has been done in the last 15 years. The jungle and pagoda in the middle garden were put in in the last 3 years.
