It makes a striking feature in the garden, with all shades of peach and apricot at a time on one rose bush. Hopefully the photos have jogged your memory about what we’ve been growing for our ‘ten minute tips. Here’s a rose wreath with highly-scented Constance Spry, David Austin’s first rose, and Mme Isaac Periere, a heritage rose dating back to 1841. Nasturtiums will clamber up the sweetcorn as it makes a sturdy support for annual climbers and scramblers. While she was still in her own home, I took armfuls of flowers- one of everything in flower- and foliage as well, to give a flavour of what was growing in my garden.

For comfort I walk around my garden picking spring flowers, as I have done for the 30 years we’ve lived here. The wet foam stays moist to keep the flowers fresher for longer and helps the stems stay securely in place. This is made by Martin and Jill Fish who provide cookery talks and demonstrations and have written a favourite book ‘Gardening on the Menu’ with advice on growing fruit and veg, and how to cook and preserve them. Sadly it has no scent, but it is a wonderful sight in June and then repeat flowers on a more modest level right through to November.Oasis wreath rings can also be used to create unique and eye-catching Christmas wreath decorations too. Blackbirds enjoy the crop at the top of the tree, and there’s more than we can use around the downward – arching lower branches. For background colour, I’ve chosen dark purple-leaved physocarpus Diabolo which in summer has clusters of pale pink flowers. But it will have another purpose for a year or two as a home for spiders, woodlice, springtails, beetles – insects that will in turn provide food for mammals such as hedgehogs, and birds. I’ve also planted my broad beans, De Monica which is a new variety specially bred for spring sowing.

uk also known for its Walkers Daffodil Collection which won 26 consecutive gold medals at Chelsea Flower Show and numerous Premier awards at Harrogate Spring Show over the decades. It’s been the mildest wettest winter on record here, and this is the first, and only snow we’ve had so far.It’s all about choosing the right varieties and getting a succession of produce all through the year. We spent a year renovating it and now love sitting inside looking out at the different views of the garden. I bought it from the Hardy Plant Society where there’s a propagating programme to save it for the future.

I hope you’ve enjoyed viewing these beautiful flowers and have got some ideas for future floristry projects.There will be hellebores and scented hyacinths at Christmas, catkins and forget-me-nots in spring, and roses and daisies all summer.

The large-flowering gladioli have to have good, fertile soil which is also well-drained and you must start with top-size corms. Over the past five years, I’ve written about growing flowers for my mother-in-law Joan as a way of keeping a connection when she started to suffer from dementia. I hope this has given you some inspiration on what to grow at home to create bouquets for friends and family all year round. I’m using purple-leaved Physocarpus Diabolo which is one of the few plants looking good in the heat at the moment.

I recently visited Chatsworth for a head gardener tour to see the new Arcadia garden planted last year. Let me know what your highlights were this summer and how your garden is looking right now on the cusp of winter weather. Then Joan would spend the day creating her own posies, selecting vases and deciding where to place them- one in the front window to cheer up passers-by, one on the hall table to welcome carers who came twice a day, a few vases for the fireplace. For the past six years I’ve been writing about growing cut flowers for my wonderful Joan who suffered from dementia.
