TINO ZERVUDACHI sat down with his client to celebrate her first night in the French château she had inherited from her grandfather. The interior designer had just finished renovating it – a huge project – and they drank a glass of champagne to toast what had proved a very happy collaboration. Then suddenly she surprised him; she wanted, she announced, to build something in New England, a stone Connecticut-style farmhouse. Which architects should we use? ‘I immediately recommended Ferguson & Shamamian,’ Tino recalls, ‘and we started Googling there and then.’ The pace has not slowed since. The chosen site was beautiful; but they wasted no time in demolishing the house occupying it. ‘It was a clumsy design and in the wrong place,’ says Andrew Oyen, the lead architect on the project.…

IT IS EARLY on a September morning, and the shire horses Aragon and Royale have just been put into harness. With a ground-shaking stamp and a creak of ancient wood and leather they take their first powerful steps and begin to pull a set of harrows over the grass, scarifying it and making it ready for seeding with ox-eye daisy, yellow rattle, red clover and buttercup. It is a meadow in the making, with the promise of a first glorious crop of wild flowers the following summer. So where was this age-old rural ritual unfolding that morning – in a quiet corner of Herefordshire, perhaps? Or one of the remoter regions of Suffolk? Neither. The seeds were sown in a section of Green Park, behind the Bomber Command Memorial and…

‘YOU’RE A PLANT, an unusual Mexican one,’ Valerie Finnis declared when I met her for the first time, having been taken along to photograph her house. Thereafter, she always grew Amicia zygomeris in homage to my name. Bursting with vitality, sharp, charming and, needless to say, passionate about plants, Valerie was fairly unusual herself. Though she died in 2006, her name lives on in horticultural circles and in the various plants that were named after her or her house, including the sophisticated pale-blue muscari ‘Valerie Finnis’ and silver-grey artemisia ‘Valerie Finnis’. On leaving school at 18, Valerie enrolled at Waterperry Horticultural School for Women, which was run by Miss Beatrix Havergal, a splendid figure who wore gaiters and a collar and tie.
