Sunday morning joy as my calla lilies (Zantedeschia) are just getting into full swing. Been waiting for these beauties to appear and there are more buds on the way. . . . . #calla #lily #lilies #instagardens #inmygarden #plants #planting #gardendesign #landscapedesign #hartley #beemagnet #nature #plantsforshade #perennial #flower #flowerstagram

Fireworks on the bridge to our garden design office this afternoon as the planters suspended above the river go into overdrive. We love July, all the colours intensify in the fields and there's one symphonic chorus before the heat finally takes its toll in August. . . . . #plants #plantsforbees #plantingdesign #gardens #gardendesign #gardensofinstagram #fireworks #planter #bridge #welcome #julycolour #garden #perennial #colour #landscaping #landscapedesign #darent #eynsford #office #studio

Avenues and sight lines are perfect for directing the eye, visually connecting you with the spaces beyond over great distances. Few places are such an example of this as Sissinghurst in Kent where the long vistas and carefully laid out avenues both invite and tantalise at the same time, drawing you through the garden in search of discovery. . . . . . #sissinghurst #gardensofinstagram #gardens #garden #gardesign #avenue #vista #geometrical #classic #invite #grid #gardendesign #landscaping #landscapedesign #kent #kentcountryside #learn #water #river #formal #formalgarden #views

One of the best lilies for fragrance and all round performance, Lilium regale, a common thread running through the white garden and a cool, shady pond area at Sissinghurst Castle Garden, its gorgeous scent filling the air on a hot July day. Got to love the lead planter, too, a timeless classic. . . . . . #sissinghurst #gardensofinstagram #lily #liliumregale #pond #whitegarden #garden #gardening #gardendesign #scent #fragrance #perfume #lead #planter #plants #classic

Return visit to a world famous garden, Sissinghurst Castle Garden in Kent, UK, once home to Vita Sackville West and Harold Nicolson. By sheer good luck we picked a blue sky day and toured the gardens in their high performance peak time. So much fragrance and too much to really take in in one day. First visited here as a student back in 1993. Never seen it looking so good, though. Too many photos to show here so will save more for later 😊 . . . . #sissinghurst #kent #garden #gardening #gardensofinstagram #gardendesign #gardendesigner #perennials #roses #historichouse #landscaping #landscapedesign #nature #statue #tower #history #poet #art #gardens #bluesky #wildlife #plants #plantsforbees #view #countryside #landscapesofinstagram

"Cloud formations on a given day And wondering if you've seen them too Are enough to make a morning pass For me. Was your day filled with wanting Or the needle point in knowing That I waited? And that I wait for you? I did. I do.". ..

Christchurch Greyfriars Garden, backing on to the remains of the once bombed church designed by Sir Christopher Wren in Newgate Street, London. Beautiful space with parterre laid out to represent the original floor plan of the church before it was bombed in WW2. The tall wooden towers which support climbing roses replicate the original church towers. A great place to sit for a while when touring London. The sculpture is by Andrew Brown and represents the care given to children by Christ's Hospital School in the City of London. . . . . #londongarden #gardendesign #gardensofinstagram #london #garden #cityoflondon #sculpture #andrewbrown #sculptor #publicspace #bombdamage #church #school #hospital #landscapedesign #landscaping #partarregarden #box #roses #climbing #beauty #classic

Waited a long time to see Nigel Dunnett's scheme at Beech Gardens, The Barbican Centre in London. Wonderful steppe plantings and woodland plantings create a series of flowering riots through the year in very shallow soil in an exposed site. Well worth a trip back again later in the year to see how it changes. This is truly an oasis in the heart of London. . . . . . #barbicancentre #london #plantingdesign #landscaping #landscapesofinstagram #landscapedesign #gardendesign #gardendesigner #publicspacedesign #public #rooftop #flowers #wildlifevalue #wildlife #nature #gardensofinstagram #allium #salvia #kniphofia #grasses #gradelisted #steppe #plants #planting

One of my favourites, Agapanthus 'Lapis Lazuli', an evergreen perennial originally from Taranaki, New Zealand, flowering now until September outside our studio door. Bees love it and it doesn't get too big, producing masses of blooms. Lifts the heart on a wet June day. . . . . . . #agapanthus #plantingdesign #plants #gardensofinstagram #gardendesign #landscapedesign #landscaping #plantsforbees #wildlife #nature #blue #evergreen #perennial #eynsford #newzealand #plantoftheday #wildlifevalue #savethebees #leaves #flowers #gardenideas

This little Corydalis lutea is a quiet, stealthy traveller. Originally from my great aunt's garden in South East London, my mother then took a small clump for her garden and small seedlings sneaked their way in another plant's pot, piggybacking into my own garden to seed itself beneath my Actaea 'James Compton'. And now it reaches fame on Instagram. Quite an achievement for such a delicate little wonder. . . . . . #plantingdesign #corydalislutea #seedling #selfsown #travel #epicjourney #wildflower #tough #delicate #yellowflowers #landscaping #gardendesign #hartley #beemagnet #gardensofinstagram

Good to see this miniature meadow mix at a local shopping centre, Bluewater in Kent. The Californian Poppy, Eschschlozia californica really shines through even on a dull, cloudy day. Surrounded by car parks, this is a lovely wildlife magnet. . . . #meadow #wildlife #nature #helpwildlife #wildflower #wildflowers #plantingdesign #landscaping #landscapedesign #bluewater #kent #commerciallandscaping #gardensofinstagram #landscapesofinstagram #m&s #shoppingcentre #california
