A full and fun day planting with Andrew Duff Garden Design.

I must confess to having almost forgotten that 5.30am existed but there was something special about seeing the sun rise on our journey to site and then set again on our journey back to London. Between these two solar events we planted a range of trees, shrubs, herbaceous perennials and young hedging. The cold, crisp weather was invigorating and it was rewarding to get my hands dirty and fill my lungs with fresh air.
