Country Gardens

Is there anything lovelier than an English country garden? Those sweeping borders, expanses of lawn, and knotty trees can be among the most beautiful landscapes we know. But if you're starting a country garden from scratch or taking over an existing space, where to begin? Our comprehensive guide to gardening and landscape design is an excellent place to start, taking in everything from layout to flowers, trees to fences. Why not start off by organising a pleasant seating area with a patio or decking and buying some elegant garden furniture? If you have plenty of space, consider setting up a kitchen garden and learning how to grow your own vegetables. Serious gardeners will also want to invest in their own garden shed and greenhouse, so that there's plenty of storage on hand for garden tools, and somewhere warm to start those seedlings and over-winter tender plants.
