Time to start measuring up the garden plot; and to think about committing my ideas about landscape design to paper in a more coherent form than the piles of scribbled notes that are spread out over my desk. There is something infinitely off putting about staring at a blank piece of paper. A feeling of despair quickly descends at not knowing quite where to start on the 14,000m2 of blank canvas to design and plant.
In the Garden magazines you can not see the plants for the journalists, Monty Don, page after page of Monty bl**** Don. This is not what I subscribed to Gardeners World for.
