Garden designer Roddy Llewellyn has been gardening for 65-years after being given a packet of seeds when he was three years old. It’s not something he’s always enjoyed, but he’s never given up. He spoke to Ken Crowther about gardening throughout this life.

College lecturer Christine Lavelle is working on a new project at Writtle College in Chelmsford in Essex. The job involves working with a colleague to rejuvenating a tired, old rock garden at the entrance of the college. The plan is to create a dry garden similar to the one at Hyde Hall as Christine told Ken Crowther.
