Synopsis
'We met as horticultural students at Wisley, and even then we dreamt of having a specialist nursery of our own and a beautiful garden,' they say. Now, five years on, and the garden is still a work in progress, but they have established their own nursery, as well as collecting some 150 different Viola varieties. Including both new introductions and old favourites, many came from the distinguished Bouts Viola Collection established by Mark and Stephanie Roberts. Today, the breeding of new violas lies in Laura and Jack's capable hands. 'Violas are very promiscuous, and are constantly cross-pollinating, so we're always on the look-out for chance seedlings,' says Laura.
