Individual Style

Maggie Alderson picks her favourite homes on the market

Gooserye

The dream: With three distinct

wings and a plethora of outbuildings

and garages, Gooserye is more like

a small hamlet than a house. With

its earliest origins in the 1600s,

it was greatly extended in 1908

in the vernacular revival style of

Edwin Lutyens. The ground floor

ambles through a glorious series

of panelled reception rooms, with

three staircases up to the first floor.

One wing, while fully attached to

the main house, is known as ‘Pond

House’ and is set up as two flats.

Where: On the edge of the

village of Worplesdon, between

Woking and Guildford.

Setting: Rural.

Beds: 11 Baths: 5

Special features: A minstrel’s gallery.

Pleasing details: An indoor

pool and a billiards room.

Outside: 16 acres of grounds

with formal gardens inspired

by Gertrude Jekyll, a tennis

court, opening up into parkland,

paddock and bluebell woods.

Time to town: 25 minutes

from Woking.

Agent: Savills, Guildford

8 Lakeside Drive

£2,195,000

The dream: A brick-built architectdesigned

20th Century gem, with

exposed brick within, a timber staircase

and polished wooden floors. It has all the

appeal of a great piece of mid-century

furniture, in house form. Extra large

black metal windows form a wall of glass,

flooding the space with light. A rare gem.

Where: Less than a mile

from Esher High Street.

Setting: The name of the street refers

to the lake it sits alongside, with plenty

of green between all the houses.

Beds: 5 Baths: 3

Special features: A double height hallway.

Pleasing details: The laundry

room is on the first floor.

Outside: Wonderful mature

landscaped gardens, with a swimming

pool and sauna/pool change.

Time to town: 30 minutes to

Waterloo from Esher.

Agent: house. SURREY

45 Vine Road

£2,250,000

The dream: A newly-built house, with

bags of character, including extra-large

Crittall-style windows (the ones with the

black metal frames) flooding the house

with light and also used decoratively inside.

The design and décor combines the best of

groovy industrial style – the odd bare-brick

wall and interesting lighting – with the

elegance of traditional fireplaces and woodeffect

floor tiles laid in a chevron pattern.

Where: East Moseley, round the corner

from Hampton Court Village.

Setting: Close to the urban buzz, but with

mature trees from neighbouring properties.

Beds: 5 Baths: 4

Special features: A New England style,

weatherboarded integrated garage.

Pleasing details: Marble-tiled

bathrooms – walls and floors.

Outside: The garden has been landscape with

a mixture of gravel, box-edged beds and lawn,

with a vegetable garden and a shade pagoda.

So, the most common question we are asked at VP:-

What is the key to unlocking the potential of a property? Just “Reimagine your home”

First things first, almost every property in London and the Home Counties,

particularly Surrey, will increase in value following a modernistaion and

enlargement. However, not everyone is looking to value their property in

purely monetary terms. Many homeowners are looking to enhance their

lifestyle at home and to make their home a reflection of themselves and how

they want to live.

Being a DIY enthusiast or practically minded might not be enough to

embark upon a significant enlargement and modernisation to a prestige

residential property. There are a myriad regulatory and local authority

considerations to overcome as well as the inevitable question, is planning

consent required? Who can help? So, more often than not, the first step is

finding the right people to get you through the process. We are here to help.

There are some very important decisions to make, both at the outset and

during the project journey itself. First of all there needs to be a complete

reality check. Why are you considering having a project carried out in the

first place, what are your goals, how much do you want to invest? Do you

want to be involved throughout, are you excited by the process or more

interested in the final result? Large scale residential construction projects

are not simple, they need careful planning and require massive commitment

from all involved. There are bound to be technical challenges, having the skill

Considering a construction project?


I can’t thank the team enough for their professional approach to achieving our planning consent, it was

an extremely complex application and not once did we doubt that we wouldn’t get it approved, such

was our confidence in them. The expertise involved and commitment to hit the ever moving deadlines

imposed by the local authority was outstanding, meaning we could get on with leading our lives as

normal without any of the stress that would have been involved for us otherwise… Client comment

What to do and see near you this month

Enchanted Forest

moonscapes

It’s the 50th anniversary of the

first moon landing, and at the

Watts Gallery in Compton you

can celebrate by exploring

Nineteenth Century visions

of and Victorian fascination

with the moon. The exhibition

will be accompanied by a

programme of contemporary

art interventions that will

accent the key themes of

the exhibition through light,

sound and space. From

Tuesday 2 April to Sunday 23

June. wattsgallery.org.uk

For art lovers, collectors, sculptors,

photographers and nature enthusiasts,

The Sculpture Park in Churt is a

hidden gem. The 10-acre site, nestled

in the heart of the Surrey Hills, is

a magical world of water gardens,

woodlands and incredible sculptures.

A folly nestles above a waterfall,

a giant tarantula towers over a

winding path and varied works

of art create a myriad of photo

opportunities throughout the park.

Three lakes complement the park’s

diverse landscape and are home to

an abundance of water creatures

and unusual sculptural features.

An eclectic mix of sculptures from

national and international artists are

on display, from up and coming local

sculptors, to well established, globally

recognised names. Nearly all sculptures

are available to buy and advice on

choice, installation and delivery can

be given by the Park’s expert staff.

Spring is a picturesque time to

visit, as the daffodils, crocus,

bluebells and snowdrops

decorate the ground.

Rhododendrons, roses

and other flowering

bushes are beginning to

bloom. There is also a

range of skunk cabbage

in the marshland – that

look a lot nicer than

they sound (or smell!).

For more information,

and to view a listing of

sculptures for sale, see

thesculpturepark.com

Dine Time

Local food champions The Salt Box

are joining forces for the second year

with The Green Escape in Leith Hill

on 24 April for a fantastic dinner

cooked over an open fire. A four-course

menu, celebrating the finest & freshest

ingredients sourced from within just 10

miles, will be served beneath the trees and

surrounded by bluebells at this beautiful,

secluded six acre glampsite. Tickets cost

£50 per adult. wearethesaltbox.co.uk

I’m pleased to be back and I’m looking forward to all that

2019 holds for Surrey Homes and its sister magazine, Wealden

Wealden Times Midwinter Fair, from 14-16 November at

The Hop Farm in Paddock Wood, plus a brand new event:

Surrey Homes Magazine’s Open House, from 10-12 October

at Sandown Park. We’re looking forward to welcoming a

whole host of fair favourites alongside plenty of new faces.

This month’s issue is packed with gorgeous interiors.

A trip to Leeds Castle’s Battel Hall reveals an extensive

renovation project for interior designer and stylist

Elsewhere, Juliet Bidwell creates a dinner party

Previous pages & above: In order to create a better and more

open space for socialising Clare knocked down the walls of

the old entrance hall and sitting room, and connected the

conservatory with the old kitchen

Art director Clare Clarkson fell in love with the village

of Pett Level at first sight. So much so that she bought

the wrong house, and simply waited for the right

one to become available. Luckily for Clare she didn’t have to

wait long, as the house that she had been coveting for some

time eventually came on the market. “It was priced too high

at the beginning,” says Clare, “as it needed so much work,

so we had to play a waiting game. Luckily no-one else could

see past the problems, but I knew exactly what to do.”

Six years later Clare and her husband have refurbished

and extended the house almost beyond recognition. The half

timbered exterior has been painted a chic matt black, an old

balcony has been transformed into a new guest bedroom and

bathroom, the old kitchen has almost tripled in size with a

new dining room and the entrance hall and sitting room

The now spacious ground floor offers

a variety of sitting areas. It is an

incredibly clever mix of the classic and

the contemporary, the rural and the

urban, the open plan and the cosy nook.

have all been opened up. In fact, the TV personality who

formerly owned the house would be hard pressed to recognise

anything apart from the home’s distinctive thatched roof.

“My grandchildren all think the house is magical, like

a gingerbread house, and in a way it is,” says Clare as she

shows me around her garden. Children’s slides and an

eco-Wendy house that looks like somewhere the Wombles

would live, nestle between pretty specimen rose bushes

and hardy perennial shrubs, all of which overlook the sea

below. An impressive revolving summerhouse provides an

external office space. I follow Clare down a few steps and

find myself on the most fabulous look out terrace, nestled

on the cliff edge. You can imagine sinking a few G&Ts here

as the summer sun sets over the Channel – there is even a

second summerhouse (complete with bed). “Just in case the

trip back to the house becomes too much!” laughs Clare.

The 1930s Arts & Crafts style house was originally built

by architects Forbes & Tate. The practice designed a series

of houses in the same vernacular dotted around the

This page: The sitting room’s original wood panelling

has been saved and re-used. “It’s all about using the same

tones and colours in an area,” explains Clare. “You can

mix a traditional wing back armchair, like the one I got

from my mother, with a modular sofa and a piece of

G-plan or midcentury modern furniture, you just have

to keep the same palette to make it all hang together.”

village, only adding to Pett Level’s sense of being a longlost

idyll of English pastoral fantasy. With its now iconic

shingle beach (as loved by David Bowie in the video of

Ashes to Ashes) and Jurassic footprint, the landscape at Pett

Level is picture postcard perfect; gently rolling hills dotted

with grazing sheep fall gently into a valley that leads to

the sea. One of the many landing points for the Dunkirk

evacuation, this small village has since become somewhat of

an architectural battle ground. A tale of two architectural

trends. Go down to the shore and the houses have almost all

(thanks in the large part to music manager Tom Watkins)

become large contemporary glass boxes, all very Miami.

However step back from the sea and nestled in and around

the rolling landscape, set back from the beach and hidden

by the trees, the houses all follow a very different visual

language. Chocolate box pretty is an over-used term, but

53 surrey-homes.co.uk


As with everything in this most magical

of houses it is Clare’s effortless sense of

style that makes it so special. It is a house

that is cherished, yet not over precious

one that would perfectly suit this very special location.

Clare explains that the original house had a poor

layout for socialising. “We had to knock down the walls

of the old entrance hall and sitting room, and connect

the conservatory with the old kitchen which was tiny,

almost unusable for a modern household.” The now

spacious ground floor offers a variety of sitting areas,

the original wood panelling having been saved and reused.

It is an incredibly clever mix of the classic and

the contemporary, the rural and the urban, the open

plan and the cosy nook. “It’s all about using the same

tones and colours in an area,” explains Clare. “You can

mix a traditional wing back armchair, like the one I got

from my mother, with a modular sofa and a piece of

G-plan or midcentury modern furniture, you just have

to keep the same palette to make it all hang together.”

It is Clare’s unique eye, both as an Art Director and as

an interior designer which one can only applaud. Where

many people couldn’t see how to make the house work

for a large extended family, Clare, literally, thought outside

the box. She looked at the house from the outside in, rather

than getting too tied in to what layout was already there. “We

brought the entire ground level up in order to connect the

living areas to the kitchen. The whole place needed opening

up and we needed to fix the flow. It works now for parties

and for family life, everyone can come and go without falling

over each other.” The spectacular conservatory is one of the

many stand out areas of the house. Dominated by the large

dining table (which one can tell has seen many a good dinner

party!) there are pots of plants and objets dotted all over. A

passion flower vine feeds through one of the windows. “It’s

quite spectacular in the summer, when the vine is in flower,”

says Clare, who has loved gardening since she was a child.

“I am a bit of a collector,” says Clare. “I get quite a few

things from my film and TV jobs and also from boot fairs.

It’s not about being the most expensive, it’s about being the

most interesting. I find amazing things around Hastings in

the shops in George Street and the High Street. McCully

and Crane in Rye is another favourite. I like weird things

that most people overlook, like taxidermy – I think it’s quite

beautiful, but it’s not to everyone’s taste, I know.” Clare

takes me through to the kitchen where she is making lunch.

A cosy guest room has a relaxed botanical feel with bold print wallpaper and floral patchwork quilt

this works so much better, don’t you think? I can stand

here and see pretty much all the main areas of the ground

floor, so it’s nice, you don’t get cut off from everything.”

The new extension, which now houses the extended kitchen

and dining area, features a spacious pitched roof with

rooflights, a large oriel window and a pair of French doors,

all of which flood the room with light from every side. Yet

more light comes in from the conservatory to the left.

Back in the entrance hall, a pair of glazed double doors

opens to the reception area. Built, like the rest of the house,

on the diagonal, with no dead flat windows or walls, the living

room offers various different nooks and crannies to explore.

Painted in a soft eau de nil colour, with a generous wooden

floor, you find a small desk area hidden away, next to a pair

of offset French windows. The main seating area is created

by a contemporary corner sofa. Several armchairs, all from

different eras, sit around an original fireplace. An over-stuffed

sofa invites you to sit in yet another area, next to which stands

an easel with a still life – it all just seems to work. You feel

the house can expand and contract seamlessly, never feeling

too large yet offering many different cosy spaces, should you

be on your own. However from the steady flow of friends

and family who come down regularly from London, where

Clare also lives, I don’t think there is much ‘alone time.’

Over the garage, where there was once a balcony, Clare has

created a guest suite, with pitched roof and large windows

and further skylights creating a light and airy space. “I wanted

a Scandi feel in this room. I got the curtains from a job,

and they sort of dictated the rest of the room. The rattan

bedhead was from eBay – I love it but my grandchildren

seem to delight in picking bits off it!” The bedroom leads

off a library area, packed with books. However the big

surprise is what lies beneath. Follow the low level lights

down a set of plushly carpeted stairs and you find yourself

in a basement cinema room, worthy of LA. Comfy sofas

and armchairs are stylishly arranged in front of the large

screen that hides behind the velvet curtain. “It’s great, we

watch so many films down here, it’s not something I would

have ever put in myself, but now it’s here, I love it!”

The upstairs of the house is equally as stylish as the ground

floor. A fully panelled staircase leads to a half landing, where

a stained glass panel sits in a window. Clare was told that it

61 surrey-homes.co.uk


This page: The master bedroom is painted in a seaside-perfect

was originally medieval and the architects had incorporated

it into the 1930s scheme. Very typical of everything in this

house, even the staircase has a story! As you come upstairs

Clare has used a wallpaper by local designer Lindsay Alker.

Called Battle Great Wood, the block print of leaping stags

feels almost Elizabethan and perfectly suits the Arts and

Crafts style of the house. A large oak mirror that Clare

found locally nods to the wooden floor and the panelling.

Hidden behind a pair of mirrored doors, that you could

have been lulled into thinking was just a wardrobe, lies a

stunning marble tiled bathroom, straight out of Hollywood.

Left: Hidden behind a pair of mirrored doors lies

a stunning marble tiled bathroom Below: In the

grandchildren’s bedroom kitsch paintings are hung in

groups on the walls and retro toys and objects style the

furniture that Clare found in a Hastings junk shop

“It used to be a look out spot,” says Clare, “but with the long

series of windows overlooking the Channel, I thought it would

make the most amazing bathroom, so I raised the bath up onto

a dais and covered it in marble, so now you can sit back and

relax in the bath and see the sea.” The master bedroom which

leads off the bathroom is painted in a seaside-perfect turquoise

and accessorised with pink fabric blinds – again showing off

the eclectic mix of Clare’s travels and interests. The room and

bathroom definitely have the touch of Los Angeles about them,

and Clare tells me the family lived in the city during the 1990s

and the bedside tables are a keep-sake from that time. The

upholstered bed, in the French style, is from Graham & Green

and the bright blue lamps are from a vintage shop in Hastings.

You can sense Clare’s TV and Film skills at work again as

you enter what she calls the “grandchildren’s bedroom.” It

is as though you have stepped into an Enid Blyton story;

kitsch paintings are hung in groups on the walls, retro toys

and objects style the furniture that she originally found in a

Hastings junk shop. A patchwork quilt covers the bed and the

same patchwork fabric hangs at the windows. A further

65 surrey-homes.co.uk


upstairs guest room is decorated in a wallpaper from Cole

& Son, that again nods to the Arts and Crafts vernacular

of the house. In each room Clare has cleverly combined

different styles and eras all put together with ease. “I was

very lucky, an artist who once lived under my husband’s

mother’s house died, and they were giving away his stuff as

no-one wanted it, sadly. We managed to get hold of some

really eclectic pieces, much of which you see in the house

now. I have added to it over the years with other pieces but

it’s always nice to inherit a good set of paintings early on.”

As with everything in this most magical of houses it

is Clare’s effortless sense of style that makes it so special.

It is a house that is cherished, yet not over precious. It

is a house that is homely yet without lacking elegance

and it is, of the many houses one visits, a house that

you would really rather love to own yourself!

Part of the Leeds Castle estate, Battel Hall has been given a makeover

Anyone with a penchant for the roaring Twenties is in

for a treat at Battel Hall. Slip into the world of the

Bright Young Things and imagine yourself as the

most dazzling character from Evelyn Waugh. This really is a

house that was meant for entertaining... and not in a hottub

and minibar kind of way. Think country house style,

whiskeys by the open fire and giddy games of hide-and-seek.

It should come as no surprise then, to discover that the

interior designer behind this remarkable building on the Leeds

Castle Estate was inspired by its previous owner, the American

heiress and high society hostess, Olive, Lady Baillie (her

mother was Pauline Whitney, of the famous Whitney family).

“Lady Baillie brought Leeds Castle back to its former

glory while introducing a level of modern luxury,” says

interior designer Francesca Rowan Plowden, who is behind

the recent refurbishment. “She created a place of serenity

and calm, yet also a place of celebration, parties and fun.”

Visitors to the Castle – and Battel Hall – in Lady Baillie’s

day included Charlie Chaplin, Errol Flynn, Douglas Fairbanks

Snr, Barbara Hutton, Ian Fleming, James Stewart, Gertrude

Lawrence and Edward VIII (who was still Prince of Wales

at the time) and Mrs Simpson. Glittering company.

It was with this in mind that Francesca approached

the ambitious restoration and refurbishment of the 14th

century hall house. “I wanted to create a sense of luxury

but also a home away from home,” says Francesca. “I didn’t

want it to be sterile and intimidating, like some hotels.”

Francesca has done this by using rich colours and

patterns, woollen throws, velvet cushions and sheepskins:

“I’m a fan of big puddles on curtains too,” she says.

By this she means an abundance of fabric, which pools

around the foot of curtains where they meet the floor. It’s a

luxurious touch that works a treat in keeping draughts at bay

in such a historic building. Working fires in the downstairs

rooms also work on both a practical and aesthetic level.

It’s a far cry from the tired and dated building that

Francesca first visited: “The last major redecoration was

carried out in the 1950s, with later updates in the 1980s,”

says Francesca and it’s safe to assume that, decoratively

speaking, there was not a lot to go on. Fortunately, much

of the property’s original architectural details remain,

including arrow-slit windows, intricately carved stone

corbels, and a rare decorative laver basin just inside the

front door. As blank canvases go, it’s pretty special.

The magic of Battel Hall hits you as soon as you walk into

its magnificent light-filled hallway. Abundant flowers top

81 surrey-homes.co.uk


Left: The main entrance hall Below: The mural is a replica of

the very rare painted altarpiece found during a restoration of

Battel Hall in the 1860s. The original is in Leeds Castle chapel

a sturdy sideboard, while a Persian rug adds homeliness to

the rich red quarry tiles on the floor. Handsome portraits

and a vintage telephone all add to the sense that you have

walked into a real, if suspiciously tasteful, family home.

Standing at the foot of the stairs, the first room

that catches your eye is the book-lined drawing

room. “I wanted this to have a gentleman’s club kind

of feel,” says Francesca, “rather than the feminine

Lady Baillie-style of some of the other rooms.”

She has achieved this with strong colours and minimal

pattern; red-painted walls and panels, and block

colours on the velvet furniture and cushions. Pattern

is restricted to the Persian rug and coffee table, while

parquet flooring is the perfect 1920s/30s touch.

Tucked around the corner is the ‘morning room’ or

the de Gournay room, as it has become known thanks

to the very special wallpaper made by the Londonbased

company of that name. “I tried to incorporate

Lady Baillie’s love of chinoiserie with beautiful,

bespoke hand-painted wallpaper,” says Francesca.

Decorating this room proved a particular challenge

thanks to the building’s historic architecture: “One day

we uncovered medieval niches in the morning room

– which proved a challenge having commissioned the

bespoke, made-to measure wallpaper,” she adds.

by the oak-panelled dining room, across the hallway and

en route to the kitchen. This vast room, with an equally

impressive inglenook, is home to a bespoke walnut dining

table by Alastair Murray that seats up to sixteen people.

There’s more than a touch of ‘castle’ about this room –

which ties in perfectly, considering its more formal role – and

it’s easy to imagine guests enjoying a glittering dinner here

before retiring to the comfort of the drawing room.

A short passage leads from the dining room into a modern

understated kitchen with butler sink, wine cooler and all mod

cons – and thinking of butlers, there is also a commercial

kitchen tucked away in the room next door, should you

As well as being exquisitely decorated,

each bedroom has a different outlook,

with views to the castle, across the garden

and towards the North Downs

Wood called Doves. The headboard is covered in Alhambra by

Lewis & Wood This page: The bathroom – the en suite to the

Wisteria room – features taps from Burlington

want to bring your own staff... Checkerboard floor tiles, a

display of copper pans and homely ceramic items all add

character, while chinoiserie blinds keep things cosy.

On the subject of cosy, one of the loveliest features

of Battel Hall are its window seats. Arched windows

and their recesses offer the perfect place to loiter and

enjoy the view, read a book – or engage in scintillating

secret conversations if the party is in full swing.

If the window seats are all taken, the upstairs landing

features several more magnificent places to sit, while behind

closed doors are the hall’s blissful bedrooms and en suites.

Francesca Rowan Plowden took the design of the

bedrooms very seriously indeed: “When I do up a house,

I sleep in every bedroom,” she says. That way, she can

get a feel for it and work out all of the touches that are

essential to a relaxed and stress-free stay. Using wallpapers

and fabrics from Colefax & Fowler, Blithfield and Lewis

& Wood, as well as smaller companies such as Lindsay

Alker and Susie Hetherington Textiles, Francesca has

given each bedroom suite its own personality and style.

Wisteria, Myrtle, Hellebore, Peony and Larkspur, as

they are called are beautifully individual and yet equally

appealing. Does Francesca have a favourite suite? “I

Previous: The Larkspur bedroom. The headboard is

covered with Rococo by Lewis & Wood. The painted

blue chest is from Ardingly Antiques Fair This page,

above: The Peony bedroom. This headboard is by Rowan

Plowden Design, upholstered in Oak Leaves by Blithfield

Left: Francesca found the painting at Ardingly

would probably have to say the Wisteria room because of

its twin-aspect and natural light, the crazy fabric on the

headboard and the fact that it has the most nods to Lady

Baillie. That said, I also love the Peony bedroom, with its

dark blue walls and dark pink patterned headboard.”

It really is impossible to choose between them. As

well as being exquisitely decorated and furnished, each

room has a very different outlook, with views to the

castle, across the garden and towards the North Downs.

They also all have luxurious, beautiful bathrooms,

continuing a theme introduced by Lady Baillie.

“Lady Baillie was quite radical when she

restored the castle, putting in ‘modern’ bathrooms

in the Art Deco style,” says Francesca.

Each of the bathrooms and shower rooms at

Battel Hall features expanses of marble, as well

as classic fittings, mirrors and lots of shining

metalwork. Smart toiletries dot the surfaces.

Hellebore’s bathroom is as lovely as the others but

holds a curious secret; a tiny, narrow corridor which

leads past a hidden staircase and through into the

Peony bedroom – any children lucky enough

to stay here would have hours of fun exploring.

The Hellebore bedroom features an enormous stone

fireplace as well as carved medieval cupboards and a view

out across the cricket pitch to the castle. The colour scheme

is a muted pale green, grey and pink and wide wooden

floorboards contrast with pretty marquetry furniture.

The restoration of Battel Hall has taken more

than two years to complete. Anyone living locally

might have wondered what was going on behind the

After extensive restoration work using the best vernacular

scheme is masterful; luxurious and comfortable whilst

blending a sense of the 1920s with the impression that this is

The latest book from award-winning

interior designer Kit Kemp is a glorious

riot of eclectic inspiration

Celebrated designer Kit Kemp says “it is an adventure

to create a new room” and that sense of energy and

excitement is clearly visible in all her schemes.

With brilliantly balanced mixes of prints and patterns,

combined with original artworks and one-off objects

commissioned and gathered on her travels, Kemp’s rooms

are curated as much as designed and invite the eye to

journey round the space, with a constant sense of discovery.

In her new book Design Threads, she takes us

through her design process for diverse projects (private

houses, showrooms, hotel rooms and restaurants,

a beach bar), introducing favourite collaborators

and sharing recipes from venues she’s designed.

“I like my interiors to capture the imagination,”

she says. “When you leave a room, something should

stay with you, making you want to return, if only

to capture that magical spell all over again.”

Turnell & gigon

Kit created this vibrant drawing room for the showroom

of fabric and trimmings distributors Turnell & Gigon

at Chelsea Harbour Design Centre. “I decided to create

a Caribbean Suite to give us an excuse to be as joyful

as possible. Accessories and artworks helped pull the

room together. I use disparate fabrics and influences

to make a space interesting, but the colours must

balance and draw your eye around in a coordinated

way.” The sofas are covered in Raoul Textiles’ ‘Eve’.

The chandelier of hand-pressed clay beads was

made specially by the Mud Studio in South Africa.

The whitby hotel

Kit first rose to fame for the wonderfully

vibrant interiors she creates for the Firmdale

Group of luxury hotels she owns with her

husband Tim Kemp. This room is on the top

floor of their newest opening, The Whitby

Hotel in New York. “We didn’t want to make

a penthouse full of opulence with gold bath

taps, nor did we want one in a spectrum of

taupe.” The prevailing colour scheme is blue

and white with a magnificently foxed mirror

and – in a very Kit Kemp touch – the arms of

the alabaster and brass chandelier have been

wrapped in twine.

Photo: Simon Brown

MYTHICAL LAND

Kit created this wallpaper for interior design company Andrew

Martin, in collaboration with Hastings-based mural painter

Melissa White. It was based on the original which Kit had

commissioned Melissa to paint for a room in The Whitby

Hotel. “Melissa and I had always thought it was such a shame

that no one else but hotel guests would be able to enjoy her

subtle painting of the scene we called Mythical Land.”

Photo: Melissa White


Friendly folk

Magnificent headboards are

one of Kit’s signature features,

which grew from decorating

the bedrooms for the ten hotels

in the Firmdale stable. The

headboards draw the eye to the

bed, providing a focal point

for the whole room. This one

is upholstered in one of her

designs for Andrew Martin,

‘Friendly Folk’. In a clever play

of positive/negative, Kit has

paired the orange-on-white

print with the white-on-orange

of her ‘Wychwood’ design. The

chest of drawers to the left is

covered in ‘Over the Moon’.

Photo: Dominic Blackmore

CARIBBEAN DREAMS

In the bedroom area of the Turnell & Gigon

Caribbean Suite, another of Kit’s fabulous

headboards and the cushions are upholstered

in Scumacher’s richly embroidered ‘Under the

Sea’ fabric. The walls are covered with ‘Sari

Sea’ by Raoul Textiles in a bespoke colourway.

Make it last

Perfume’s heavenly waft can be all too fleeting -

Josephine Fairley advises how to make it linger longer

Hermès Eau

de Citron Noir

Moisturising

Balm, £45

for 200ml

I’m often asked, in my role as co-founder of The Perfume

Society, ‘What’s the best way to make fragrance last on

my skin?’ And the answer, quite simply, is to layer on

matching body products. On well-moisturised skin, you’ll find

your fragrance is time-released through the day – which is why

fragrance experts often talk about the importance of ‘layering’.

And the good news is, layering is massively back in fashion.

Just a few years back, perfume companies all seemed to be

radically discontinuing their perfume-matching body products,

but lately, there’s been a complete reversal of that trend and some

truly exquisite bath and body products are now being launched.

For the most opulent effect, start with a bath treat (oils

are brilliant because they veil skin in light oils as you emerge

from the scented waters), then apply a body oil and butter,

then layer fragrance over the top. This also massively ups

your own pleasure quotient, because you get to wallow

in your chosen fragrance throughout the process.

So this month, as our body skin reaches peak dryness after

months living in centrally heated environments, just as we start

to think about removing layers of clothing, seems the perfect

time to share some of my favourite discoveries.

Heathcote & Ivory Neroli & Lime Leaves, from £5-10. Let

me begin with this total steal, my favourite Heathcote &

Ivory launch to date, a zingily zesty, fresh Cologne-style

scent that is a wonderful wake-up call for the senses.

Within the collection there are some really fun Bathing

Flowers (£10) that look like paper roses, dissolving

in the bath to scent it (and you) with notes of neroli,

lime leaves, white flowers and subtle musks.

Follow, perhaps, with luscious Softening Body Cream and

finish with a zhoosh of the Eau de Toilette. And if you don’t

feel spring-like after this, I really can’t help you.

Frédéric Malle Body Butter, £115-150 for 200ml (price depends

on fragrance). I softened you up (literally) with that superaffordable

option, above, before ricocheting straight to the

other, ultra-luxe end of the price spectrum. But this is one of

those instances where you really do get what you pay for…

It’s fair to say that sometimes,

fragrance-matching bodycare

has been disappointing, far

from a true representation of

the fragrance we know and love,

but in their sleek black pots,

Frédéric Malle’s smell exactly like

the original perfume creations.

This holds true whether you

choose perfumer Dominique

Ropion’s tuberose-heavy Carnal

Flower, or his modern classic Portrait

of a Lady, Edward Flechier’s almost


E. Coudray Iris

Rose Perfumed

Body Cream,

£38 for 250ml

119 surrey-homes.co.uk


photorealistic Une Rose, or Musc Ravageur, created by the nose

Maurice Roucel, a scent so outrageously sexy that my otherwise

liberal husband won’t allow me out of the house wearing it.

These are all utterly luscious, truly buttery confections,

seriously skin-nourishing – and a little goes an astonishingly

long way; indeed, you can wear these body butters instead of,

rather than as well as, the accompanying fragrance – and at this

price, probably just as well. (There are also Body Milks, Body

Washes, Body & Hair Oil – pretty much any type of luxury

your heart desires, within the range, although not everything is

available in every scent.)

Chanel No.5 The Body Cream, £65 for 150g. While everyone

else was dropping their bodycare, Chanel have continued to

offer a wide range of treats from top to toe. Available in several

fragrances (check out the chanel.com website for the full rundown),

the body creams are voluptuously rich, in beautifully

hefty, Chanel-emblazoned jars. Lighter textures are also

available and I’ve a particular soft spot for Chanel soaps, which

is another great starting point for layering.

Jo Malone

London Orange

Blossom Body

Crème, £54

for 175ml

Hermès Eau de Citron Noir

Moisturising Balm, £45 for 200ml.

Best keep this citrusy treasure

under lock and key, because

Hermès’s minimally-packaged,

complexion-soothing treat (which

can be used on hands, face and

body) also does double duty as an

aftershave balm.

Jo Malone London Orange

Blossom Body Crème, £54 for

175ml. Jo Malone London fragrances

are designed to be layered – but not in the traditional way.

Instead the brand encourages applying combinations of

fragrances to create something that’s different again.

This particular hefty glass jar of sweet-scented, white floral

heavenliness has pride of place on my bedside and I slather

my limbs with its moisturising formula night after night – but

you could follow their Fragrance Combining suggestions and

layer it with, perhaps, the classic Lime Basil & Mandarin,

or, for something more exotic, Dark Amber & Ginger Lily.

Jo Malone London offers a superb line-up of layerables, from

hair fragrances to bath oils and even shampoo.

Goutal Paris Italian Hand Balm, £26 for 40ml. Now

that the late founder of the perfume house’s daughter

Camille is at the helm, this most quintessentially French

brand has had a name-change to Goutal Paris.

Although there isn’t a huge range of bodycare on offer

in the UK (do check out what’s on offer in the lovely

store at 14 rue Castiglione, just off the rue de Rivoli

next time you are in Paris), I do want to point you in

the direction of the gorgeous new hand creams.

The ‘Italian’ fragrance (there is also Garden and Oriental)

is wonderful smoothed onto wrists before spritzing Eau

d’Hadrien, one of the all-time stars in the pantheon of

Cologne classics.

Floral Street Neon

Rose Body Cream,

£22 for 200ml. Great

name, great fragrances:

inspired by Covent

Garden’s flower market (the original, not the sprawling

modern location in Battersea), Floral Street offer a portfolio

of appealingly affordable scents, some of which now can be

enjoyed as Body Wash (£18 for 200ml) and Body Cream.

There are four ‘neo-florals’ (as in, not your granny’s

floral scents…), in the bodycare collection and I

particularly like this gorgeous fusion of jasmine, apple

blossom, bergamot, angelica and peach nectar.

I promise you’ll almost hear your skin slurping up the blend

of shea butter, sweet almond and argan, as you smooth it in.

I recommend some playtime at the brand’s store on Covent

Garden’s King Street.

E. Coudray Iris Rose Perfumed Body Cream, £38 for 250ml

(escentual.com). This vintage French fragrance house

is pure boudoir chic. It’s almost a crime to apply this

cream unless you’re wearing a silk peignoir, while sipping

a glass of something sparkling. It’s super-nourishing

(hazelnut, sweet almond and jojoba oils feature in the

blend), and the scent is pure ‘Mummy’s handbag.’

There is also a Body Oil (£55 for 100ml) in this

fragrance and a gorgeously bottled Eau de Toilette

to spritz as your final, feminine scent gesture.

And if your favourite fragrance doesn’t have accompanying

body care? I’m an advocate for some experimentation. You

can mix-and-match perfumes and bodycare, though it helps

to stay within the same fragrance family – florals with florals,

Orientals with Orientals, etc. – to avoid scent clash.

Not confident enough to do that? Then reach for an

unscented body cream or butter as the ‘base’ on which to layer

a favourite fragrance. Try Clinique Deep Comfort Body Butter,

£26 for 200ml (like everything they make, it’s fragrance-free)

– or if you’re on a budget, I don’t really think you can beat

Aveeno Daily Moisturising Lotion, £7.69 for 300ml, a nongreasy

formula featuring

skin-soothing oatmeal. Then

lavishly scent yourself over it

with your perfume of the day.

And may you waft

gorgeously (and longlastingly),

from here on in.

health news from across the South East

Med-Jet for Mesotherapy

at Health & Aesthetics

Main image: istockphoto.com/Deagreez

Godalming’s Health & Aesthetics has the new

Med-Jet device which can deliver Mesotherapy

without the need for traditional injections.

Med-Jet uses a microscopic jet of pressurised CO2, seven

times finer than the absolute finest needle, to deliver

the treatment with precision accuracy, offering a real,

effective alternative to needles. The jet pierces the skin

and the dose is dispersed into the desired layer of tissue,

but because no needle is used, there is less trauma to

the skin, and less stress and pain for the patient.

Med-Jet can also be used to deliver Botox to areas

which are simply too sensitive for needles to be used

comfortably. Health & Aesthetics are using Med-

Jet to deliver Botox to the hands and feet, where it’s

used to prevent excess sweating – and where even

microscopic needles can cause excessive discomfort.

Another key benefit is that the delivery of the

treatment using Med-Jet allows for easier dispersion of

the chosen product, rather than ‘pooling’ around the

needle. This can lead to better results for the patient.

Dr Rekha Tailor, Health & Aesthetics’ Medical

Director, said: “The Med-Jet device represents a real

advance in treatments which could previously only be

administered by needles. Even though the needles we use

are microscopic, many people still have a fear of them and

when used for treatments such as Meso therapy can cause

severe discomfort. This can be strong enough to prevent

them from seeking out treatments which could make a

real difference to how they feel about themselves.”

Intimate Feminine

Wellness at Bella Vou

As a result of childbirth, and the natural aging

process, experiencing looseness, dryness,

and other symptoms in your vaginal area is

common, the side effects of which can be diminished

physical sensation during intercourse and urinary

incontinence. Stress incontinence (releasing small

amounts of urine upon coughing, sneezing, laughing

or exercising) and urge incontinence (strong need

to urinate, but can’t get to the toilet in time), or

needing to go to the bathroom many times during the

night are more common among women, especially

postpartum, menopausal or postmenopausal women.

While many women feel self-conscious about their

condition and hesitate to seek advice or treatment, Bella

Vou offer a safe, non-surgical treatment with CO2RE

Intima at their Tunbridge Wells Pantiles Clinic. The

CO2RE laser system is designed to provide a comfortable

treatment experience. Similar to having a smear test, the

CO2RE Intima laser is inserted inside the vagina. The

gentle laser energy is pulsed into the inner and outer vaginal

tissues, resulting in coagulation and stimulation of collagen.

These changes begin immediately after treatment but may

take the prescribed number of sessions for optimal results.

Utilising the advanced laser system, the CO2RE

Intima is a 10 minute procedure which is carried out

at 4 week intervals over a three month period. This

course of 3 treatments can help to alleviate multiple

symptoms including: dryness, itching, burning,

painful intercourse, leaky bladder, fallen bladder/

prolapse, loose vaginal appearance and loss of sensation

during intercourse. These symptoms can occur in

different combinations and varying severities.

This latest technology in non-surgical vaginal

rejuvenation features multiple benefits for patients,

including no downtime, no anesthesia and no invasive

procedure with 15-minute sessions that are convenient

to schedule and immediate results for patients.

As the CO2RE Intima system does not require

any downtime or healing, most women are able to

return to normal activities, including full enjoyment

of intimacy a week after treatment. Bella Vou’s

team will create a customised treatment plan for

patients based on each particular condition and

continue treatment until full results are achieved.

Cervical Screening

at Illuminate Clinic

Embarrassment makes women avoid smear tests,

according to BBC News, following a survey with

2,000 women, on behalf of Jo’s Cervical Cancer

Trust. One in 4 women skip the cervical screening

altogether, increasing to 1 in 3 amongst those aged

25-29. 3,200 women are diagnosed with cervical cancer

every single year, and nearly 900 die annually.* Being

invited for tests every 3 years (or 5 years if over 50),

is simply not reassuring enough for some women and

those over 64 don’t get invited by the NHS at all.

So Dr Sophie Shotter, Illuminate Clinic’s founder,

wanted to help change these shocking statistics by making

cervical screening readily available at her clinic: “These

statistics are frightening and we really shouldn’t rely

solely on the NHS to keep ourselves healthy. A friend of

mine, Laura, had a hysterectomy at age 30 and I want to

do all I can to avoid anyone else having to go through

that. I also know 18 women personally who have had

abnormal smear tests. It’s shocking that uptake of smear

tests is at an all-time low. Many women I know are so

proactive about their health, and would choose to have

smear tests more regularly – this is an area of the body we

can’t examine for ourselves. We already promote women’s

health and well-being through our bioidentical hormone

replacement therapy services at the clinic, and this felt

like a natural add-on to help our patients feel reassured.”

Dr Sophie is offering her patients quicker results and

tests whenever required. The clinic will also offer HPV tests

and vaccinations, to help prevent certain cervical cancers

caused by the infections. Most HPV infections do not lead

to cancer, but they can, so Dr Sophie wants to be able to

safeguard her patients by offering services that they are able

to have quickly and conveniently.

Luscious Lips (Lip FiLLer)

With age, the lips naturally become thinner

and lose their definition, and the v-shaped

area of the upper lip, known as Cupid’s

bow, is where you’re most likely to see this

happen.

Many people try to disguise the effects

of ageing in this area with make-up, but

it can bleed down the vertical wrinkles

and highlight the problem. If you’ve been

wondering how to look younger, lip fillers

are an easy answer because they’re quick,

affordable and non-invasive.

They can be the centrepiece of a makeover

that gives you youthful looking, plump lips

and a more defined smile. Because the lips

are sensitive, we apply local anaesthetic

cream about an hour before the procedure

to numb them. Dermal filler is injected,

usually into the upper rim of the lip to

define the Cupid’s bow, and immediately

afterwards you may experience small

pinpricks for a few hours.

There is often some mild redness of the

Wellbeing

A Year of Wellness

Hormones control everything from how much sleep we get to

how happy we feel – Eminé Rushton explores how we can balance

them to create healthy equilibrium

April: Finding your balance

Without diving too deep into

the biochemistry behind our

body’s mechanisms, it’s safe

to say that, for most women, rarely a

month passes without us feeling the

impact of our hormones.

I have friends who suffer extreme PMT,

others who struggle to regulate serotonin

levels and feel continually foggy and sad

and yet others with disturbed sleep. Then,

later in life, there are all the challenges

that comes with the menopause. From

our skin to our sleep, our moods to our

energy levels, hormones rule.

Naturally, when we are living good,

healthy, calm lives, our endocrine system

is able to produce all the hormones we

need, in the right quantities. But in

today’s fast-paced world, where we work

longer hours, sleep less, switch off rarely

and eat less natural, unprocessed food,

our endocrine systems are unable to do

the crucial work that they need to do.

To balance hormones, the simplest

changes have the biggest impact. A

balanced diet with plenty of healthy fats,

oils, protein and complex carbohydrates,

is key. Studies have also shown

that consuming healthy fat at every

meal triggers the release of the ‘satiety

hormones’ that help you feel full and

satisfied (rather than empty and still

craving sugar) – think avocado, olive oil,

nuts, seeds and oily fish.

High stress levels are perhaps the

biggest impactor upon our health.

Cortisol, the ‘stress hormone’, has a

big knock-on effect on oestrogen and

progesterone production. You need a

good level of progesterone to balance out

the effects of oestrogen – and because

cortisol and progesterone are made from

the same mother hormone pregnenolone,

when you are extremely stressed (so

producing a lot of cortisol) your body

sacrifices its progesterone production.

These higher levels of oestrogen in

the body cause a raft of very familiar

symptoms – PMS, bloating, breast

tenderness, heavy/painful periods – but

if oestrogen levels remain elevated over

a long period of time, they also put

women at an increased risk of fibroids,

endometriosis and breast/ovarian cancer.

There is also a tricky vicious cycle

in regard to sleep. When we are

menstruating, pregnant or post-partum,

or in menopause, our hormone levels

are more likely to be imbalanced (with

oestrogen spiking or falling), which

makes us more prone to interrupted

sleep. And, interrupted sleep also causes

our hormones to imbalance further.

By doing all that we can to establish

a good sleep routine – getting into bed

at the same time each night and rising

at the same time each morning – we

stand a better chance of supporting our

hormonal production to click back into a

healthy groove.

Early lights out,

screens off, hot

baths and plenty

of time away

from work

and tech,

every evening,

is vital. And we

need to incorporate

ample stress relief – yoga, walking, time

in nature, and time away from screens –

into our everyday lives.

And plenty of self-care! A recent

review of multiple studies found that,

on average, massage therapy not only

reduced cortisol levels by an average of

31%, but also increased levels of the

mood-boosting hormone serotonin

by 28% and dopamine by 31% – a

wonderful reason to book in for a

treatment, or to warm some oil and

massage your own feet, hands, arms, legs

and torso, with firm, soothing strokes.

Given the seriousness of certain

conditions associated with chronic

hormonal imbalance I would urge all of

us to put our hormonal health at the very

tops of our lists. I’ve also found books

on the subject – from Henrietta Norton’s

Take Control of Your Endometriosis,

Christiane Northrup’s Women’s Bodies

Women’s Wisdom, and Lucy H Pearce’s

Moon Time – extremely helpful in

deepening my understanding of our

bodies, cycles and needs.

“ In today’s fast-paced world, where we work longer hours, switch

off rarely and eat less natural and unprocessed food, our endocrine

systems are unable to do the crucial work that they need to do.”

Answering

your questions

about back pain.

Nuffield Health Guildford Hospital.

We caught up with our Consultant Orthopaedic

Spinal Surgeon, Mr Guy Paremain for his stance on

4 common back pain myths:

1. Will an MRI show me what’s wrong

with my back?

An MRI scan is a very helpful and reliable form of

imaging. They are great at showing problems such as

slipped discs, however, they aren’t always able to tell

us why you are in pain.

2. Is surgery my only option as I’ve been

having back pain for years?

No, not at all. There are specific problems that can be

treated surgically but most spinal complaints are best

treated non-operatively. Exercise and painkillers are

the main types of treatment.

3. Should I stay in bed when my back

is in agony?

Doctors have previously recommended long periods

of bed rest, but this has been shown to be quite

wrong. We now encourage patients to remain active,

early mobilisation generally leads to quicker recovery.

Why come to Nuffield Hospital if you are

having problems with your back?

Our highly experienced expert Orthopaedic

consultants are renowned for their consistently

successful surgical outcomes. We offer rapid access

to Orthopaedic treatment, in a state-of-the-art

facility. We are not for profit & reinvest back into

developing our services & improving the quality

of patient healthcare.

What is your Recovery Plus programme

and how can it help me?

Recovery Plus is our staple recovery programme,

available free to private self-funding patients

combining the Nuffield services. You’ll receive

a personal recovery programme & coach, health

check, exercise & diet advice and a 3-month

gym membership.

Our Orthopaedic surgeons

We have a range of Orthopaedic Surgeons at our

hospital, specialising in many areas from spinal to

hip & knee and foot & ankle.

4. Will I be immobile for a long time

after spinal surgery?

No, generally you will get up the same day or the day

after surgery. Most of my patients spend one or two

nights in hospital before they go home.

Food

Green & pleasant

With St George’s Day on the 23rd of this month, Juliet Bidwell has created

a menu inspired by olde English dishes, using native and seasonal ingredients,

with a modern twist – what could be lovelier?

Photographs: David Merewether Styling: Holly Levett Food: Juliet Bidwell

Halibut with wild garlic mayonnaise

Serves 8 Prep time: 25 minutes. Cooking time: 15 minutes.

In Tudor times, by law, fish had to be eaten instead of meat

on certain days for religious reasons. Wild garlic is native to

Europe and grows wild in English woodland, making it an

excellent forage food. It is also known as ramsons, from the

Saxon word hramsa. It has been used in English cuisine for a

thousand years.

• 1.4kg halibut, cut into

portions

• 160g breadcrumbs

• 2 lemons, zested

• 2 tsp rosemary,

finely chopped

• 2 tbsp chives,

finely chopped

• 2 tbsp parsley,

finely chopped

• 4 tbsp olive oil

• salt & pepper to taste

Wild garlic mayonnaise

• 200g wild garlic, washed

• 2 tbsp mayonnaise

• 2 tbsp crème fraîche

• ½ lemon, juiced

• salt & pepper to taste

1Preheat oven 190˚C.

Combine the

breadcrumbs with the lemon

zest, rosemary, chives and

parsley. Add the olive oil and

season with salt and pepper,

stir till the breadcrumbs

are evenly coated in oil,

and taste for seasoning.

2Place the halibut portions

skin side down on a

baking tray lined with

parchment paper. Pat the

breadcrumbs evenly onto

the halibut and bake in a

hot oven for 7-10 minutes

till just firm to the touch.

Remove from the oven and

leave to rest for 5 minutes

before serving with the

wild garlic mayonnaise.

For the garlic mayonnaise

3Blanch the wild garlic

in boiling salted water

until wilted, drain and

when cool, squeeze to

remove the excess water.

4Put the wild garlic

and mayonnaise into

a food processor and blitz

until smooth. Remove to a

bowl and stir in the crème

fraîche and add lemon juice,

salt and pepper to taste.

Spring vegetable & goat’s cheese pie

Serves 8 Prep time: 20 minutes. Cooking time:1 hour 30 minutes.

Earliest references to pies, go back to the Middle Ages, when

• 400g small white turnips,

peeled, cut into 2cm cubes

• 400g banana shallots,

peeled, sliced into

2cm rings

into 2cm lengths

• 120g baby leaf

spinach, washed

• 6tbsp olive oil

• 80g butter

• 4tbsp crème fraîche

• 1litre vegetable stock

• 200g soft goat cheese,

• 4tsp tarragon,

finely chopped

• 8 sprigs of thyme

• 8 sprigs of rosemary

• 320g puff pastry,

ready rolled

• salt & pepper to taste

1Preheat oven 180˚C.

Sauté the leeks in half the

olive oil and half the butter

until soft, then remove from

the pan and set aside in a

bowl. Add the remaining oil

and butter to the pan. Add

the turnips and shallots and

cook until golden brown.

Then add the stock, thyme

and rosemary sprigs and cook

till the turnips are tender.

Remove the turnips from the

stock and add to the leeks.

Keep the stock.

2Meanwhile, blanch the

asparagus until just

tender, drain and add to

the other vegetables along

with the spinach, tarragon,

crème fraîche and goat’s

cheese. Gently mix together

and place in your pie dishes

with a little stock if needed.

3Cut your pie dishes and

brush the rim of the dishes

with the beaten egg. Place

the pastry on and crimp

the edges, and cut two slits

in the top of the lid so

the steam can escape and

brush the pastry with egg.

4Place the dishes on a

baking tray and cook

for 30-40 minutes till the

pastry is golden brown

and piping hot.

Lemon & lime posset with rhubarb & ginger

Serves 8 Prep time: 36 minutes. Cooking time: 30 minutes.

Rhubarb arrived in Europe from Asia in the 14th century.

Originally it was used for medicinal purposes, but started to be

used in cookery when sugar became more abundant and cheaper

in the 18th century. Ginger was imported, from much earlier,

also for medicinal purposes. A posset was originally a hot drink

made of milk curdled with spiced wine, often used as a remedy

for colds. In the 16th century the drink evolved into a cream,

sugar and citrus-based confection, similar to syllabub.

then place in the fridge.

An edible paradise

Jo Arnell tells us how to make a productive garden beautiful with deliciously attractive plants

There are a couple of boring

old phrases that hover, Jiminy

Cricket-like, in my ear when

I’m plotting out my vegetable garden:

‘cut your coat according to your

cloth’ is one, and, ‘don’t bite off more

than you can chew’ is the other.

By the beginning of every June,

when I’m up to my neck and nearly

choking, I realise that I should have

paid attention. There is sense in not

overreaching, in pacing yourself and

generally living within your means,

but the problem is that I can never

find much joy in that approach.

To me, a garden, especially a

productive one, should be gloriously

immersive. If your outdoor space

(or even your window box) is a

gorgeous place, brimming over with

beauty and promise, you’ll feel that

quiet surge of joy that will make

the (sometimes overwhelming) hard

work and effort worthwhile.

Veg patch or flower border?

A cottage garden traditionally

combined vegetables, herbs and

flowers. Somewhere along the lines

they were separated and the vegetables

were consigned to the boring back

of beyond, hidden at the bottom of

gardens, or done away with altogether.

Where vegetables are still in evidence,

they are often a bit lacklustre, sitting

in dutiful rows, catching the sun,

but not many admiring glances.

Don’t get me wrong, I do find

a well-organised vegetable plot to

be a thing of beauty in itself and

appreciate that growing in rows makes

it easy to hoe, feed and maintain the

crops, but somehow I can’t help but

feel it all needs jollying up a bit.

One of the ways to do this is to grow

flowers among the vegetables, to have

less of a workaday veg patch and more

of an alluring edible garden. Even if you

do have a dedicated vegetable garden,

you can grow some flowers among them

in the form of companion plants – some

flowers are edible too and will have a

dual role as pollinators, attracting in

beneficial insects. They are beautifiers

and will act as a lure, not just for the

insects but for you and your visitor,

making you want to visit the plot.

Vegetables to grow in the flower borders

Ideally you want crops that have a

fairly long period of interest, to avoid

them looking depleted too quickly.

They will need a sunny spot with good

soil and not too much competition

from other greedy plants.

“If your outdoor space is brimming over with beauty

and promise, you’ll feel that quiet surge of joy that will

make the hard work and effort worthwhile ”

Grown this way veg are less prone

to disease and attack by pests, will

be more productive and benefit the

wider environment. It is the unnatural

monocultures (picture the dust bowl

prairies, or endless acres of just one crop)

that are unhealthy and prone to huge

plagues of pests and widespread disease,

that become reliant on ever-increasing

amounts of chemical fertilisers and

ecologically disastrous pesticides.

No time or space?

There are lots of ways of having an

edible garden and you don’t have to

aim for self sufficiency – just a small

container full of homegrown tomatoes

might be enough this year, but while

you’re growing those, why not aim

for a bit of salad to go with them?

One cucumber plant will keep you

in cucumbers for the season, while

salad leaves pop up and are ready to

harvest in just a few short weeks.

The plant breeders and garden

centres offer dwarf, ‘patio’ versions of

many vegetables and these will happily

provide mini crops in smaller spaces.

Some, like stubby Chantenay carrots

are actually better off in containers,

where they will grow straight and true,

away from the pesky carrot fly that

lurks at ground level, its larvae waiting

to bore holes into tasty carrot roots.

Herbs

Herbs are such good value plants. Pretty

to look at, fragrant flavour enhancers in

cooking and drinks. They are especially

useful to grow in containers and most

will sit happily – and more or less

permanently – on the window sill,

positively thriving in a dry situation

and even enjoying regular haircuts.

If you are fed up with the pots of

herbs that you buy at the supermarket

dying almost as soon as you get them

home, here is a life-saving tip: the

Clockwise from top left: Use netting to protect crops from pests like the Cabbage

White butterfly; Vegetables grown in traditional rows; Potato ‘Pink Fir Apple’ is

a main crop variety, but eaten as a new potato; Sunflowers can be grown as a cut

flower crop or to entice pollinators to your patch; Dahlias appreciate the same rich

soil as vegetables

Above: Nasturtiums - pretty edible

reason that they are dying, when you

pull them out and look closely, is that

there’s not just one plant in the pot,

but often up to thirty, all crammed

up against one another. Separate these

little plants, grow them on in their

own containers and you will have

enough to last you (and possibly your

neighbours) the whole summer…

You don’t have to wear a hair shirt

to grow vegetables (other gardening

outfits are available), it really can

be a pleasurable experience. If your

plot looks inviting, you might even

be more inclined to go out there.

Let’s pacify our inner Jiminy and

hijack William Morris’s wisdom about

beauty and usefulness (‘Have nothing in

your house that you do not know to be

useful, or believe to be beautiful’) and

enjoy the process of growing, harvesting

and eating something fabulous.

Edible beauties

There is still plenty of time to grow a plot full of beautiful vegetables

this year. Here are some of my favourites, chosen for flavour and ease

of growing as much as their looks.

Artichoke ‘Violetta di Chioggia’

– almost too decorative to eat,

artichokes can happily be grown at

the back of the flower border. This

one has stunning purple buds.

Courgette ‘Parador’ – will give you

a sunshine yellow crop to harvest

all summer long. Keep picking

them, in fact don’t even turn your

back for a moment, or you will end

up with a yellow submarine…

Cauliflower ‘Romanesco’ –

technically this is a broccoli, but let’s

not split curds. Despite the impressive

looks it’s much easier to grow than

cauliflower and tastes good too,

elegantly spiralling from plot to plate.

Borlotti bean – climbing or

dwarf – these truly magic beans

can be eaten young as whole

pods, or left to mature on the

plant to harvest as actual beans.

Turk’s Turban – this squash will squat

handsomely amid sprawling tendrils;

leave to ripen like a gleaming jewel in

the early autumn garden. Pumpkins

and squash also store really well,

making them a great late season crop.

Lettuce ‘Lollo Rosso’ – this is

a loose leaved variety with frilly

dark red leaves. Loose leaved

lettuces are slower to bolt (go to

seed) than hearting types. Mix

them in with a green loose leaf

type for a colourful salad bowl.

Picturesque lavender fields

With a career working in the fine fragrance industry

under his belt, in the nineties and early naughties Brendan

Maye decided to try to reestablish English lavender’s

credentials by growing it in Surrey. But without a farm

to cultivate the flowers, Brendan looked to a local

environmental charity for help. By sponsoring the charity

to plant the lavender and leasing a field near Banstead,

Brendan was able to get his project off the ground.

Brendan bought the lavender and over the years he and

his wife Lorna have grown their business from strength

to strength, adding a Plant Nursery and Gift Shop by

transforming a dilapidated plant nursery in Epsom. The

farm will be open to visitors throughout the summer from

June, whilst the nursery and gift shop (which incorporates

12 acres of lavender, fruit trees and glasshouses) is open all

year round. mayfieldlavender.com

Fern times

Sue Whigham marvels at these most ancient of plants, which were around before

the dinosaurs and still have a lot to offer gardeners now

You always learn something from being out in the

garden and this morning I heard from someone

who knows that one of the questions on a recent

University Challenge was ‘What does pteridomania mean?’

I didn’t discover whether the students knew the answer

or not as this conversation coincided with a sparrowhawk

homing in at huge speed on the myriad small birds waiting

their turn for our bird table. So much excitement.

Anyway, yes, fern fever or pteridomania was rife in

Victorian times taking over the obsession for roses in

the earlier part of the nineteenth century to the extent

that men, women and children would risk life and

limb, sometimes with fatal consequences, trying to

reach and dig up native ferns growing in ravines, above

fast flowing rivers and other rather dangerous sites.

Some of them went out into the countryside armed with

fern trowels especially designed for the job. I did notice one for

sale on eBay this morning, for the princely sum of £120.00.

This ‘fever’ coincided with the craze for greenhouses

and all manner of garden rooms in Victorian gardens

as well as special fern houses where they could show off

their collections and improve on their social cred.

Their cold, often dark and polluted houses became

full of ferns especially after the introduction of the


17 surrey-homes.co.uk


Sponsored by

Wardian case by one Dr Nathaniel Ward. He realised

that ferns grew well in nearly sealed containers

and thus every house that possibly could, had ferns

growing indoors in either a fern case or terrarium.

Not only that, Victorian houses and public buildings

were often embellished with ironwork incorporating fern

imagery. Ferns decorated every possible object in a Victorian

house including wallpaper, tablecloths and curtains. The

craze even extended to ferns being carved onto coffins.

Ferns are an ancient family of plants. Work done on

early fern fossils has established that they pre-date the

Mesozoic period of over 360 million years ago. They are

older than the dinosaurs and any land animals and thrived

on the Earth for 200 million years before any flowering

plants evolved. They are a member of a group of vascular

plants that do not flower or set seed but reproduce via

spores and have very specialised tissues that conduct

both water and nutrients around their structure.

One of the most exotic-looking ferns growing in the UK

are the chain ferns or woodwardia. To say that they are

theatrical is an understatement. The fronds of Woodwardia

unigemmata, AGM can reach 1.5 metres and the croziers

are a rich and vibrant dark orange when they emerge in

the spring. Once the plant matures, it grows young plants

“Ferns thrived on Earth for 200 million

years before any flowering plants evolved”

on the tips of its fronds which arch over and take root.

The reason for the name ‘chain fern’ is that their

sporing bodies are arranged on the back of the

fronds in a row resulting in a chain-like pattern

which shows through to the top of the frond.

I had a good look at the fronds of the woodwardia

that I spotted at Great Dixter recently (it’s evergreen

which is all the more reason for growing it) and the

chain pattern was very pronounced on the top of the

frond. That one is growing in a very sheltered position

protected by a wall and by various shrubs which

keep the winter winds from shredding its fronds.

Woodwardia fimbriata is another giant chain fern

with fronds up to six feet long and whilst it is hardy

down to about -5 degrees C, it is happiest in a moist

soil and a sheltered aspect. Or perhaps in a pot which

can be moved into a greenhouse or garage during the

winter. If left out, bracken (another fern) wrapped

around the base will help protect the plant.

If you do decide to keep ferns in a pot, a good

growing medium would be three parts multi-purpose,

part loam and part horticultural sand. A grouping

of the evergreen or wintergreen ferns is so beautiful

particularly in small or courtyard gardens where they

provide such fabulous winter interest and work well with

emerging winter aconites, snowdrops and hellebores.

Evergreen ferns can be good in shaded, perhaps

dreary spots. Blechnum chilense, AGM, a large fern

with dark green narrow leathery leaves is good for this

sort of site but also looks amazing in a pot. Native to

Chile, it apparently lines the sides of the roads there.

There are so many thousands of ferns to discover, mostly

with unpronounceable Latin names but don’t be put off as

their common names are much more manageable. Take the

tatting fern, Athyrium filix-femina ‘Frizelliae’, whose fronds

resemble lace tatting. This is hardy and deciduous and so

very decorative. Each leaflet looks like a little ruffled fan.

These ‘Lady Ferns’ were amongst the many ferns that

were so popular with the Victorians when there were

hundreds of named forms. This one was named after

a Mrs Frizell who discovered it in Ireland in 1857.

Another named form was found by a Victorian student

called James Cosh who apparently stepped on the plant as

he jumped over a wall. The leaves break from the stem at an

angle forming a V shape and thus the plant was named after

Queen Victoria. Hence Athyrium filix-femina ‘Victoriae’.

There are ferns for every situation, even the driest patches

under trees. Try aspleniums, polypodiums and polystichums

in dry shade but give them a good start by incorporating leaf

mould, bone meal and plenty of organic matter. Keep them

well watered until they take off and you should be fine.

The native Asplenium scolopendrium seems to be lining

ditches and shady stream banks whenever I’ve seen it, but it

seems to be a survivor and can cope with drier conditions.

The little asplenium that clothes walls in great profusion,

particularly in old stone walls in the West Country, is now

known as Asplenium ceterach or more simply, the rustybacked

fern, and was used in its guise as a spleenwort to treat

diseases of the spleen. You know these ferns are survivors as

in hot weather the leaves wither and you lose sight of them,

but as soon as the rain comes, they spring to life again.

Ask the Experts

Just what is it that inspires a garden designer,

how can trees be incorporated into a planting

scheme and how can you bring a little of

the indoors, outdoors? SH finds out

Stephen Moody from Frogheath Landscapes chats inspiration and design

What are you currently working on? We’re working on

some interesting projects with challenging ground levels and

access issues. At our base in Burwash Weald our apprentices

have been putting the final touches to our 2019 Chelsea

Flower Show garden called ‘Donkeys Matter’. Designed by

Williams and Prebensen, this show garden in the Artisan

category will demonstrate how owning a donkey in many

countries gives access to clean, fresh water for some of the

poorest and most vulnerable communities in the world.

Nursery visits are essential at this time of year as we

prepare for the Spring planting season. Hardy trees,

shrubs and perennials are usually planted in the autumn

but this time of year we are finishing many gardens with

plantings of slightly less hardy plants that require warmer

and less damp conditions to establish before next winter.

Where do you find your inspiration? Our main inspiration

has to be the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty that we

are fortunate enough to work in. Take a walk from Burwash

Weald to Bateman’s (Kipling’s former home) through the

Dudwell valley in spring and you will always be inspired.

RHS Flower Shows are also a great source of new

and inspirational ideas from around the world.

a specimen tree in parkland but not so attractive or

magnificent as a hedge around a small suburban garden.

Do you have a signature look or plant? At Frogheath

Landscapes we always strive to create a good balance between

hard landscaping and planted areas. Our teams have a broad

range of both hard landscaping skills (brickwork, paving,

walls etc) and soft landscaping skills (planting, lawns, trees

etc). We have certain plants that we regularly use. They are

what we call ‘good doers’, for instance flowering reliably over

a long period or keeping a neat, evergreen shape. These are

particularly useful in small gardens where space is premium

and plants have to work hard to earn a place. Examples of

these are Salvia caradonna and Nepeta ‘Walker’s Low’.

Where’s your must-visit local garden/nursery and why?

English Woodlands in Heathfield are a wonderful source

of trees and shrubs. They are also very helpful in sourcing

difficult to find specimen plants. How Green Nursery in

Hever grow and sell a huge range of perennials and grasses.

Although they mainly sell direct to the trade, they hold

several open days through spring and summer when the

public are welcome to visit and stock up on treasures.

Do you have any plant loves or hates? I don’t really

have any plant hates. It is more a case of disliking what

people do with plants. For example, the much maligned

X Cupressocyparis leylandii; this magnificent, large,

noble tree of dense columnar habit looks amazing as

The team at Practicality Brown discuss how

mature trees can fit into a garden project

What are you working on at the moment? There

are several large projects on our books at the

moment, where we are working on full landscaping

designs, which include supplying beautiful specimen

trees as well as our mature, instant hedging.

One of our recently completed projects was for a beautiful

house set in the Conservation Area of a quintessential

Hampshire village with extensive established gardens;

our client wished to develop and divide the land whilst

maintaining the mature look. We supplied our UK grown

Instant Hedge, as it provided the immediate impact

and necessary maturity to complement the existing

landscape. Other elements of this project included

supplying and planting two mature specimen trees.

Can trees be incorporated into any garden design? Within

reason, almost any plot can include a tree, enhancing

even the smallest of gardens. Position such trees well

and they will make an ideal focal point or use them

to screen out unwanted views; trees create structure

and seasonal interest to any garden and landscape. A

pleasure of planting semi-mature trees is that they can

be enjoyed now and for succeeding generations.

When choosing trees, it is worth considering just

how much space you have, and which seasons best

suit your planting scheme. Trees can bring all sorts of

focus to your garden whether it’s through their flowers,

foliage, fruit or bark, creating colour and interest all year

round, through welcome shade, as a wildlife magnet

and even tasty harvests, if you are planting fruit trees.

How long do they take to acclimatise and when

should they be added? Our newly planted trees

and hedges will establish well, with no problems

as long as there is appropriate aftercare; the plants

are fully settled within a couple of seasons.

All plants need water for their growth, whether from rain

or supplemented by irrigation. The amount of water which

is available to the plants depends on the type of soil and its

water retention properties e.g. sandy or clay. We recommend

regularly observing the plants, so that additional watering

may be started in time. The greatest need for water is when

plants are actively growing, and it is sunny and/or windy.

What should be considered when choosing the

height of a tree? Trees are a great addition to any

garden, creating structure and seasonal interest.

Choosing a tree can be challenging, so make sure you

look at the attributes to find trees that match your

requirements. You can use the Tree Finder on our

website to select those features, including final height.

If you only have room for one tree, we would suggest looking

for one with more than one season of interest such as fruit

or autumn colour following on from spring flowers. It is

important that any tree is chosen for their surroundings, in

terms of proportion as well as for their decorative value.

What type of tree proves to be most popular amongst

your clients? There are many reasons to add a tree

for your garden, whether it’s an elegant Acer, a Laurel

to provide privacy or a formal avenue of Limes.

Screening trees are particularly popular, as gardens can

provide a sanctuary and respite from the busy world and

using such trees to screen out or hide an undesirable view,

creates some valuable privacy. Generally, evergreens are

preferred for this purpose and can be planted densely to

achieve maximum effect from the offset. However, planting

a selection of trees, if space allows, can provide rich contrast

and seasonal interest. We have created a list of our ten

most popular screening trees, from Holly to Hornbeam.

Tell us a little about your instant hedges... We have

specialised in instant hedges for over 20 years, which

have provided immediate impact and maturity to

many private gardens and landscaping projects. Our

instant hedges are: mature and pre-grown, sold by the

linear metre (rather than as individual plants) and

available to plant all year round. They are

supplied between 0.8m and 2m high.

Using our experience in developing, maintaining

and planting instant hedging, we are producing our own

Practical Instant Hedge which is mature hedge grown in

1m troughs here at our nursery in Iver, Buckinghamshire.

The Practical Instant Hedging range currently

consists of Native Mix, Griselinia, Yew, Elaeagnus and

Portuguese Laurel, with more species to follow and has

been seen at award-winning Garden Designs at both

the Chelsea and Hampton Court Flower Shows.

Graham Oliver from Urban Grow

Pods explains how he’s making the

most of his room outdoors

Tunbridge Wells based company Urban Grow Pods have

launched a range of contemporary eco friendly garden office/

studios as an answer to the growing need for more space.

Graham Oliver, designer and maker of the Urban Grow Pods,

sat down to design his ideal garden studio when, with the

arrival of his son at the beginning of 2018, the office made

way to the nursery. “At times of economic uncertainty, we

think twice before we look to move from a home we love

in an area we feel settled in,” he says. His growing family

needed more space and wanted a high spec garden room

that would give them a light flooded and eco-conscious

office space to feel inspired in, with all year round use.

“The urban grow pod is eco-conscious through and through

and built to last in what has become a disposable society.

Sheep’s wool is an ideal natural material for insulation and

combined with our luxury lacquered birch panelling with

maple skirting and roofing details, the Pods feel amazing

to spend time in. We have the thickest walls on the garden

room market to insulate from urban distractions and ensure

a solid construction that is extremely well insulated.”

Skills thrills

Skills

for learning are a better basis

for education than fact cramming

says Hilary Wilce

Children go to school to learn. But learn what? Schools

have been grappling with this question ever since

they were invented and life in the 21st century is

adding yet more complications to an already tangled tale.

Obviously, children need to be taught stuff – reading and

writing, English grammar and literature, biology, physics

and chemistry, history and geography, technology, modern

languages. They also need to be taught about art and music

and drama. And, of course about themselves as human beings,

by learning about wellbeing and human psychology.

But children also need to be helped to

acquire skills. All the facts in the world

are useless unless you also know how to

research, question, evaluate, collaborate,

and problem solve. So schools need

to teach facts and skills through all

the subjects on their timetables.

That’s a big ask in itself, but schools

are also now expected to address the ills

of society. They must teach children about avoiding obesity and

self-harm. About not carrying a knife and spotting fake news,

handling their screen time and taking care of their mental health.

It’s easy to see that it’s impossible for schools to teach

everything and how we choose to cut the curriculum

cloth will always prompt arguments. Traditionalists want

children to come out of schools knowing tons of hard

facts. They are advocates of a ‘knowledge-rich’ curriculum,

emphasizing memory, instruction and practice.

But in today’s internet age, does it make sense to use

valuable classroom time teaching the kinds of facts and

figures that children can look up on their smart phone in

“In today’s internet age, does

it make sense to use classroom

time teaching facts and figures

children can look up on their

smart phone in a trice?”

a trice? Wouldn’t it be better to spend more time teaching

them how to do research on the internet, what sources

they can trust and how to spot fakery and bias?

The so-called ‘skills-led curriculum’ does exactly that,

encouraging children to actively discover what they need to know,

to work collaboratively to learn it and to reflect afterwards on what

they have learned. In this skills-led approach, what children learn

is not considered nearly as important as how they learn it. Because,

so the thinking goes, if they have learned how to learn about one

thing, they can use all those same skills to learn about another.

A while back, a lot of money

was put into training teachers to

deliver lessons based on engagement,

collaboration and reflection, and this

approach has led to plenty of active

and interesting classroom education.

But it has also led to a sorry

amount of content-light lessons

in which pupils faff about making

posters or playing games. Now, though, the curriculum

pendulum, having gone quite far one way, is swinging back

towards more teacher-led lessons with lots of factual content.

Of course, the elusive sweet spot will always be somewhere

in the middle. Obviously, it’s good for children to have

core literacy and numeracy, to understand the sweep of

human development and to have a good grasp of science

and technology. But it’s no good if they have simply been

fed these things in order to regurgitate them in exams.

It’s just as important that they leave school knowing

how to apply knowledge, make connections, evaluate

information, and find out things for themselves.

Why it’s important for

children to read the news

So why does reading a newspaper

engage children?

In the era of social media and ‘fake news’, it has never been more

important for children to understand the world around them and to

develop skills to question and critique what they read.

News is a unique form of non-fiction text. News tells the stories of our

local, national and global communities. It includes serious world issues

and debates, fascinating technological and scientific discoveries,

entertainment and sport as well as the daft and silly oddities of everyday

life.

1) It’s fact not fiction

2) Children choose how they would like to read the

paper – front to back, back to front, read headlines

and lead paragraphs

3) There’s a real reason to discuss what they’ve

read

4) They can have an opinion … and have it heard

Hall runs like clockwork under

Reserved and dutiful like his

father before him and with the

funny and forthright housekeeper

Kenton by his side, Stevens

faithfully serves his employer.

Meanwhile, England stands on a

precipice, as fascism builds and

boils in Europe. Twenty years

later, Stevens travels to find an

old friend, remembering choices

made and not made, journeying

to one last chance at happiness.

Now transformed into an exquisite

stage play by one of Britain’s

most exciting writers Barney

Norris, Nobel Prize-winner Kazuo

Ishiguro’s novel, which became a

beloved Merchant Ivory film, is

a story for anyone who has ever

Jane Howard’s

Fables from

the Farm

It’s proper spring and Jane and the

bees are getting busy (and buzzy)

Early April brings moments of warmer weather and

the chance to cast jumpers aside and step out in just

a T-shirt. Bliss, but this is no time for getting out

the deckchairs and lemonade, it’s time to look at the bees.

I last peeked inside in October when I made sure they

had plenty of stores for the winter. And then after closing

them up for the last time I wrapped their wooden hives

with flappy plastic bags to frighten off woodpeckers

who are wont to drill their way in and eat the honey.

For the same reason I fitted tiny metal guards across

the entrances to stop mice moving into what must

be delightfully warm and cosy winter quarters. Then

it’s time to let the bees seal up all the cracks from the

inside, which they do by collecting tree resin and sap

and mixing it together into a gloopy concoction called

propolis and literally sticking everything together.

I can’t help thinking it’s only a matter of time before – move

over spinach, quinoa and blueberries –

propolis becomes the next ‘super’ thing.

Apart from being bee glue, it’s a good

antiseptic, used by the ancient Egyptians

as part of the mummification process and

taken out to battlefields to treat wounded

soldiers as recently as the Boer War.

So with antibiotic resistance becoming

an ever more pressing issue, it may yet

make an important comeback. And

that’s not all – the great violin maker Stradivarius favoured

it over everything else to varnish his priceless instruments

and many musicians still agree there is nothing better.

But come that sunny April day, when it’s time to crack

open the hives and see what’s been going on inside, I’m always

full of dread and excitement in equal measure. Every year a

significant number of bees don’t make it through the winter.

The British Beekeepers Association monitors the number

of winter losses, region by region, and despite best efforts

losses were at about 23% in the South in 2017, 17% last

year was better and we won’t know about 2019 till we’ve all

looked, recorded and sent off our forms later this year.

But as ever hopes are high that not only will all five

of our hives have made it, but that the queen will be

laying lots of eggs to build up

“It’s only a matter of

time before – move over

quinoa and blueberries

– propolis becomes the

next ‘super’ thing.”

numbers for the season ahead.

Honey bees survive by having about

50,000 worker bees in the summer

that are frantically busy collecting

nectar from flowering plants and trees

to turn it into stored honey. Numbers

then drop in late autumn to about

10,000 who survive by eating the

stored honey. And all these bees come

from just one queen who, all being well, will by now be laying

frantically in a bid to get those numbers up – do the maths and

you can see from February to June she has her work cut out.

Urban bees often have a much easier time of it than their

country cousins. With so many parks, gardens, patios and bits

of wasteland, city bees don’t have to go far to find their flowers

and there is of course the most wonderful variety when they

get there. Greater London Honey recently won Best in Show at

The National Honey Show – the honey equivalent of Crufts.

By comparison, their country cousins often only have acres

of monoculture like oilseed rape to forage upon. But luckily

the Coopers Farm girls (all worker bees are girls, but let’s not

go down that road) have the equivalent of a handy deli round

the corner in the shape of our wild flower meadow. We planted

about fifty bee-friendly species six years ago and now it’s a joy,

for us, the birds, the bees and who knows…we could just give

the City boys a run for their money in the tasty honey stakes.
