(House and) Garden

Comments Off on (House and) Garden

The publicity machine rolls on!  Last week saw the publication of a wonderful article in the (very upmarket) House and Garden magazine.

As with many of these things the wait was long, but very well worth it.

The photos were taken by the wonderfully talented Britt Willoughby Dyer  over two years ago, and so a few things have changed in the interim.

Words are by Abergavenny’s own Sarah Price.  Sarah has visited Nant-y-Bedd on a number of occasions and has mentioned us in one of her articles for Gardens Illustrated, so we were thrilled when she was asked to provide the text for Britt’s photos.

To have two such skilled (and lovely) people write about us makes the garden maintenance so worthwhile.  Thanks also to the team at House and Garden.

Nip out and get a copy before they sell-out, but in the meantime here’s a proof copy to peruse.

Don’t worry, Sue hasn’t left the garden and signed up with the US Army!  GI is apparently shorthand for the magazine Gardens Illustrated as used by “those in the know”.

GI is probably Sue’s favourite mag in the whole world and this month she’s got her name in it!

Sarah Price, who visited the garden in May is currently writing a series of articles for GI and the October version features Wild Flowers in Gardens.   One of photographer Britt Willoughby Dyer‘s recent pics of the garden has been used by Sarah to illustrate how to “bring a spontaneous sparkle to a vegetable plot”, In this case our onion beds.

If I had had my way these “weeds, that are shading my onions” would have been pulled up long before Britt or Sarah saw them!

Here’s a copy of the first page of the article.

PS:  I’ve just had my arm firmly twisted to acknowledge that despite the “weeds” we had a most tremendous crop of onions (see earlier posting) and ………. Sue was right (there, I’ve said it!)
