Photographs to illustrate the article published in The Mediterranean Garden No. 90, October 2017

A humorous look at handling and enjoying groups of visitors to your garden.
Yvonne Barton has a glorious garden in central Italy. Look at the selection of her photographs below and tell me you wouldn’t like to take advantage of one of her open days!
