The Lady’s Gardening Column

Throughout the whole of 2015 I worked with garden columnist Sarah Langton Lockton on her gardening column for The Lady Magazine, documenting the development of her newly designed garden. She inherited a rather overgrown neglected town garden, when she moved to her new home in Faversham, and with the help of garden designer Posy Gentles restored and recreated the space. The result is beautiful.

It was a great pleasure working with Sarah on this project. Every few weeks she would invite me over to make a photographic record of her newly dug beds, pruned and restored trees, plant additions, landscaping ideas, greenhouse constructions and vegetable plots. We always had a lovely chat about the changes and additions, and often I walked away with a cutting from a beautiful plant or a tasty homegrown fruit or vegetable.

Here are some of the columns we worked on together throughout the year.

How it all started

At the end of 2014 I was approached by Sarah Langton-Lockton, the garden columnist of The Lady magazine. She had recently moved to the area, and was looking for a photographer to document the development of her new garden.

A few months on and I have had my photos published in 3 editions of The Lady Magazine. It is a great pleasure to visit Sarah’s garden on a regular basis, to witness the work and document the seasonal changes, and to have my photos illustrate her interesting columns. Apart from enjoying working with her on this project, I have also learned a lot from watching her meticulous planning and laying out of her garden with the help of my friend Posy Gentles (garden designer extraordinaire).
