Rhachel de Thame and the BBC
Day one of the show today and what a day it has been! Visitors to the garden started with a number of VIP guests led by Alan Titchmarsh, who was very complimentary about my garden (before he realised I was listening I hasten to add!); Rachel de Thame being filmed by the BBC for Gardener's World highlighting the lovely Plant Crooks by Plant Belles that I have used throughout the garden; Joe Swift being filmed talking about the innovative use of the timber swirls to add height and draw people into the heart of the garden and a whole of host of radio, magazine and newspaper photographers and editors. Live radio interviews, an interview for TheHorticulturalchanel sky TV chanel, and Gardeners World Magazine photographers were busy taking snaps in the garden for a long time, as were the TV crew for the Gardeners World show going out this Friday night. Comments from the public about my garden were hugely encouraging with many coming back later in the day to say they loved my garden above all the others (which is of course what every designer wants to hear!). The powerful planting, timber swirls and the fact that my garden appeared to be affordable and achievable to replicate at home were major draws for people. When can I start to plan next year's garden??!!
