The first episode of the new Love Your Garden series was a stunner!
The Perrins-Seedhouse family were truly deserving of such a special garden makeover.
Here is the garden when we arrived:
And here is the finished result!
Love this woodland style? See my Get the Look guide for a planting list!
We put our all into this garden. We wanted it to be truly special for Nina and her family, and also to be a fitting tribute for Gareth.

Would love to know where to purchase the glass stars, please.
Hi Linda, we made them from these stars from Etsy – we glued two together and made a little hole at the top for some string. Here’s the link> http://etsy.me/1Lmdz5e
I hope you can help, I would love to make the pallet plant holder they made for the lovely lady.
can you please give instruction to help.
you did a fantastic job David with the water feature.
Hello Tracey. We removed the slats from the back of the pallet, exposing the inner planks that would be the shelves. We attached the extra slats around the edges to create a frame. Then we put the pots on the three shelves and nailed wire across the front to hold them in place. Hope that helps! David
