A riot of form and colour in the perennial meadow is offset by a calm gravel terrace at the centre of the garden. Held in by a cloud clipped hedge, this outdoor room is a quiet place to pause & dine, still with a connection to the wilder and productive areas of the garden.

a chair sitting in front of a sliding glass door that leads out to a garden
Opened the doors early this morning to the most mysterious misty light and stillness in the garden. September is here and despite the heat this week, it brings a glimmer of a new season ahead and a time to reflect. The young field maple trees we planted in the spring have put on lots of summer foliage and next years growth will see them beginning to take on the form we imagine for them. This autumn we'll be developing the dry gravel meadow beneath the willow tree by the pond.

an outdoor table and chair in the middle of some bushes
Willow, we've been waiting for this moment!.. Over the past few months we've been working on a personal garden project in the background. Making a garden for ourselves which focuses on using reclaimed materials and low impact methods. Incorporating all existing trees and mature climbers we were lucky to inherit and bringing a new layer of planting which is robust and drought tolerant. Keen to have a winter garden we've planted lots of evergreen structure, the Osmanthus is now fully in bloom.
pink flowers and other plants in a garden
Sharing some of the key perennials which give our Fisherman's Cottage garden it's character. Each of our gardens has it's own individual palette of plants, based on the site and it's specific requirements along with both aesthetic and biodiversity needs. Planting gives a garden it's true identity and some of the most successful schemes can be complex yet feel effortless.
some very pretty flowers in the middle of a field with lots of frost on them
We so rarely get such heavy frosts at home on the Kent coast, it's lovely when we do! . . . . . #teasels #kentcoast #jackfrost #frosty #inthegarden #thismorning #gardenjournal #gardens #allaboutplants #winterstructure #coastalgardening #capturethemoment #farlamandchandler #sundaymorning #slowsunday
pink and white flowers in the middle of a garden
Beneath the Figs in our Fisherman's Cottage Garden. Busy time in the studio planning a productive garden and what is one without a fig tree? Of course for the fruit but the leaves can also be used to make the most delicious ice creams and syrups. . . . . . #rainydayinspo #gardenplanning #makingagarden #figtree #figleaf #fishermanscottage #cottagegarden #whitstable #kent #coastalgarden #inthegarden #productivegarden #kitchengarden #potager #icecream #seaside #summerbythesea #farlamandchandler

a garden filled with lots of green and white flowers
Our Fisherman's Cottage garden is featured in this month's @housebeautifuluk coastal edition. We left our garden behind a few weeks ago; passed over to someone else to enjoy and push forwards. This photo was taken on our last morning there, capturing one of the things greatly missed; the magical glow of morning light. . . . . . #morninglight #fishermanscottagegarden #gardenlight #earlysummerlight #magiclight #lightnessoftouch #alliums #magicalspaces #summertime #coastalgarden #gardeningbythesea

Glorious hazy morning light in the garden.
