I made a visit to Graham’s forest garden recently and was blown away by the beauty of the place, it made my heart sing to see so much abundance. It was enough to bring you to tears, of joy and the peace and tranquility it instilled was something that no amount of money or therapy could ever buy. It seemed to me to make everything possible and achievable, effortlessly, although Graham and Nancy have worked very hard over the years cultivating and nurturing their beautiful garden. When I compare this kind of garden to trimmed lawns, neat bushes, rows of flowers or food there is just no comparison. I was reminded of my own mantra ‘organised chaos’ and a real sense of nature just knowing what is best was palpable. I would highly recommend a visit to Graham and Nancy’s garden, it is deeply inspiring and the hosts are more than happy to explain everything with patience and good humour.
