Have your say

Valentine’s Day will come and go, but you can create a 
lovers’ paradise in your 
outdoor space, incorporating all the senses of touch, smell, sight, taste and sound.

Whether it’s a woodland garden or flowing fields or a rustic cottage garden bursting with fragrant blooms, deliciously scented roses and clematis growing around an arbour, or waves of purple wisteria blooms draping over the walls of a house, all gardeners can have their share of romance.

Even on the smallest plot, you can create a touch of romance with old-fashioned plants, winding walkways, rustic arches, willow trellises and soft climbing blooms.
