Where do your flowers grow?
There’s been a cut-flower industry – and controversy over flowers out of season – since at least Roman times. The philosopher Seneca wrote: ‘Do not men live contrary to nature who crave roses in winter or seek to raise spring flowers like a lily by...
The Daily: January 30
Hilary Mantel beats five, shortlisted authors to claim the Costa Book Award Hilary Mantel has won the Costa Book award for her novel Bring Up the Bodies. The judging panel, which included actress Jenny Agutter, broadcaster Katie Derham, author Wendy...
‘They’re beautifully painted but very stiff,’ I overheard a lady say of this small exhibition covering two centuries of Dutch flower painting. I’ve often scurried past similar exhibitions myself in other galleries. There always seems to be an awful lot...
Top spring gardens
East Blickling Estate, Norfolk Four centuries of good husbandry have made Blickling's 55 acre garden one of the greatest in England. It changes through the seasons and has evolved over the centuries to reflect different fashions. Visit in May and...
Daffodil walks
From St. David's Day onwards comes the traditional celebration of daffodils, a welcome sight after the long, cold winter. Many of the National Trust's 200 gardens will be bursting into colour throughout March and April, heralding spring as they spread...
Autumn glory
I defied a nasty cold and battled my way into town, to the Royal Horticultural Halls in Westminster. The event that drew me was the RHS Shades Of Autumn Show, a firm favourite of mine among the London shows, an eclectic mix of the best-performing...
The Lady Guide to Modern Manners: 7 April
Dear Thomas I was surprised and upset to see chrysanthemums in church last Easter Sunday. These could only have come from a florist. In a country district, you would think more appropriate spring flowers could have been found. I’m hoping this...
20th Century Wedding Fashion: 1910s
The Dress The Victorian era saw brides corseted and bustled into uncomfortable styles, which continued into the early years of the 20th century. However, by the latter part of King Edward VII's reign up until World War 1 in 1914, brides were choosing...
The end of an era
Fitful rain and a biting wind do not make venturing into the garden an enticing prospect, so I am looking down on it intently from my study window, making little forays outside when I need to check on the precise location of a plant. It continues to...
Your Health Dr James Le Fanu: 29 June
The memory, like any other faculty, is strengthened by constant use. This presumably accounts for the fact, often commented on by my contemporaries, that their parents' powers of recall seem to be so much better than their own. Certainly my father's...
On a fragrant trail
I travelled back to London by train in a carriage suffused with the delicate, slightly peppery fragrance of newly picked roses and a hint of something that reminded me of the very best after-dinner mints. The roses, beautiful bunches of them – and the...
My love affair with gardens
This is the first of my new gardening columns. Not that I’m exactly new to The Lady – many of you have been following, for two years or so, in Plotlines, the ebb and flow of life on my allotment. My garden quite often crept into the column and I also...
Here comes the sun
The sun came out, fitfully, but for long enough to warm the air and coax me into a flurry of activity in the garden. It was the first time this year that it has been a pleasure to be outside. I peered and prowled a little anxiously, but, despite what...
The perfect visit
I escaped for a few days from the heat of London to stay with my cousin and her husband in Exeter. As usual, they organised the perfect visit, combining relaxation in the soft and soporific Devon air with outings to some special places. This time we...
Starting from scratch
Six years ago, after a long period of dithering and indecision, I moved from one side of London to the other, to be near children and grandchildren. After some dispiriting months of viewing properties I couldn’t afford or couldn’t face living in, I...

Rebel with a cause
Reginald Farrer, gardener, garden writer and plant collector, ‘a strange and fragmented character’ who had a natural tendency to revolt against the received ideas of his time, is the subject of one of the best biographies I know, A Rage For Rock...
Enchanted garden
Last week, I took you on a tour of the fireworks that greet one at every turn in the dramatic Winter Garden at Anglesey Abbey. This week we visit an older Winter Garden, subtle and enchanting, first established in 1979 and forming part of the...
Bloomin’ stylish
It’s clever, thoughtful, gorgeous to look at and not overstuffed with text or objects. Fashion And Gardens, curated by writer, historian and Garden Museum Trustee, Nicola Shulman, is the current exhibition in the museum’s enterprising small gallery....
Thoughtful gardening
I was idly skimming a piece on the comedian Ruby Wax in the weekend section of my newspaper. She has a self-help book to promote on the fashionable concept of mindfulness, defined in the article as ‘the ability to live in the present and self-regulate...
