Kevock Goes To Chelsea…

Kevock Garden Plants,  a specialist nursery in Lasswade, is celebrating a Gold Medal (with full points) at this year’s RHS Chelsea Flower Show.

Here, Coreen Connell, Head of Propagation – whom regular readers will remember for her 2016 Gardening column – takes time out to share some pictures and quotes that remind us of the power and inspiration of gardens…

‘When the world wearies and society fails to satisfy – there is always the garden’.

Minnie Aumonier




‘The glory of gardening: hands in the dirt, head in the sun, hear with nature. To nurture a garden is to feed not just the body, but the soul’.

Alfred Austen



‘A garden is a grand teacher. It teaches patience and careful watchfulness; it teaches industry and thrift; above all it teaches entire trust’.

Gertrude Jekyll
