Our history and heritage very much inspire the type of period property we dream of living in – Georgie Jones’ 300-year-old Hampshire cottage (page 32) is the perfect example. But, equally, the new generation of country women are stamping their style on the clean lines of more recent buildings, as Vanessa Roberts’ stunning remodelled 1950s house in Kent shows (page 22). Whether their property is aged or mid-century, the owners have each styled their home with an of-the-moment country look that’s right for them.

In two sizes: 1.5L, £9.95, and 3L, £12.95, both from Harrod Horticultural. Q&A WITH A SHARING GARDENER What’s new at RHS Hampton Court? We asked the influential landscape designer and author Piet Oudolf about his first installation at RHS Hampton Court Palace Flower Show this July. What encouraged you to take part?

Designer Helen Round creates beautiful hand-printed linen homeware and accessories, with designs inspired by the Cornish coast and countryside. In March she opened her first shop in a listed, converted stable block on the Mount Edgcumbe Country Park Estate in Cornwall. The shop is part of a collection of studios for local artisans and makers that surround the cobbled courtyard. We asked Helen to tell us more… WHAT INSPIRED YOU TO OPEN YOUR SHOP? It has always been a dream of mine to have a space where people can come and view our collection of hand-printed linens. So, when two workshops became available at nearby Mount Edgcumbe, this gave us the perfect opportunity to have a shop with an adjoining studio, so visitors can both see us at work and view…
