Garden designer and Geranium expert based in Hampshire.
" Many planting schemes will use a clash of colours and a variety of shapes and sizes. As a general rule, mauve and blues are 'cool' colours which will make any garden appear larger"
" In small gardens every plant must earn its keep. You can grow the correct plant virtually anywhere you want without sacrificing your design sense. Get creative with discarded objects that can become instant planters"
" Encourage wildlife into your garden and let nature keep slugs, snails, greenfly etc, out of your garden. The more wildlife your garden encourages, the less you will have to do to keep away pests"
" Paving over everything may not always be the right solution beware of anyone that suggests it - over 5 square metres requires planning permission"
