Spring into Summer

Plantswoman Carol Klein shares with us a year in her garden at Glebe Cottage in north Devon.

In May and June, everything in the garden is surging forwards, full of exuberance. Rather than sitting back to enjoy it all, Carol is planting out sweet peas, picking the first salad leaves and staking perennials.

Blossom drips from the trees, the woodland garden is carpeted with bluebells, and primal ferns begin to unfold. Carol's opulent oriental poppies pop their hats in the early summer heat and, as the welcome hum of insects returns to the garden, Carol and husband Neil take delivery of their first hive of honey bees.
