Tips and Inspiration for your European holiday

As a gardener and garden lover, I love to visit the magnificent gardens of the UK and Europe whilst on my travels.  I've been lucky enough to visit some famous and not-so-famous gardens over the years and admire the work of the talented and dedicated designers and gardeners who tend lovingly to these living works of art.  Despite sometimes being crowded due to their popularity, each of the gardens I've visited has had a calming effect on me and has left me aspiring to create a little of this magic in my own garden.
