What a transformation in the second episode of Love Your Garden series five!
Sheila and Alex were in desperate need of a garden makeover. Their beloved house and garden were ravaged by the Somerset floods.
After a long struggle to get back into their home, the garden was left looking like this.
And we made it into this.
I loved the potting shed, which made a great focal point and gives Sheila a special place to herself.
The New England style really suited the space and the planting was stunning.
Hat tip to the special seating area too – perfect for entertaining!
I hope Sheila and Alex will spend plenty of time out in the garden, enjoying their retreat from the world.
See behind the scenes of this episode!

Hi Lorna, it is a standard Viburnum opulus.
Hi, I am interested to know about how you did the patio. We have a small concrete printed patio which we want to extend and this may be a solution for covering it all. I would really appreciate any advice as we are stuck for what to do with it. Thanks.
Ps love the show as does my 12 year old daughter.
Hi Elizabeth, we used a resin bound gravel coating over the existing patio. We mixed gravel with a resin and laid it flat – it sets hard. We got it from Addagrip: http://www.addagrip.co.uk
I am so impressed. What a fantastic place. Organising it all and completing it.
I love these borders, is there a plant list for this episode? I can’t find it on the WordPress site. Thank you!
