Synopsis
'Whilst Geoffrey marked out a kitchen garden at the far end of the garden, I planned out different areas between the house and pergola: we met in the middle where there was some space left and, after a lot of deliberation and some sketches, we decided on a formal pond,' explains Gillian. The result is a beautiful town garden which, despite its unorthodox beginnings, is delightfully stereotypical of a husband-and-wife gardening duo. For whilst Gillian's area is full of flowering plants, Geoffrey, a retired management consultant, maintains an immaculately ordered vegetable garden at the top of the 70-metre x 15-metre plot. It is a decade now since the couple bought the three-bedroom Tudor house in a Suffolk village. Since then, the northwest-facing garden has been transformed.
