As a rambler whose favourite walks of all time are in Scotland, this issue makes me want to pull on my walking boots and head north!

garden notes

THE WINDOWSILL WINNER Nothing lifts the spirits more than flowering houseplants, and the Hippeastrum (amaryllis) will give you an enviable display.

They had visited Avoca a decade before and liked our concept, so asked if I would help them do something similar. I took my lead from the estate’s history…
