Welcome to Tina Parkes garden.
Tina is a British Master Florist and garden lover. She designed her garden three years ago from scratch and in this delightful 20 minute film she walks through her garden, identifying plants she loves to use in her day-to-day floristry. She also explains how she planned the garden, using lines and forms to give this town garden interest and depth.
She has created a beautiful garden that works well on the eye, grows vegetables and flowers as well as foliage for cutting and is wildlife friendly, what could be better?
