(FEATURE PATRICK HAMILTON COURTNEY) Clifton has long been one of our favourite London garden centres, so its opening in Surrey last year got our green fingers twitching.

When we first set eyes on the property, corny as it sounds, it was love at first sight.’The earliest part of the house dates back to the 16th century, built as a single living space with a central fireplace and a hole in…
