Synopsis
'We lived in the nextdoor house, and I used to gaze out of the upstairs window at this overgrown garden, planning and dreaming,' recalls Vivien from her London home. Not long after, she and her husband, Peter, bought nextdoor and the L-shaped, quarter-of-an-acre plot was hers. 'The garden engulfed the house on two sides with huge shrubs, an old Nissan hut and a mound hiding loads of rubbish,' she explains. But there were some lovely flowers clinging to a dilapidated trellis. 'I was very excited until I discovered it was bindweed.'
