At her historical garden in Shropshire, the writer and gardener Katherine Swift is busy planting and preparing for the spring opening to the public.
Fifteen years ago Katherine began building the garden at Morville Hall on the site of a former Benedictine monastery, and its sixteen different sections have come to represent the changing styles of English gardening through the ages. Throughout the year we'll be visiting her every week to discover the delights of her garden and hear about the work that goes into creating and maintaining it.
Even at this time of year, she's hard at work, and despite the often atrocious weather, Katherine says she still takes time out to appreciate and enjoy what she describes as the pleasures of the garden in winter. Maggie Ayre joined her at Morville Hall near Bridgnorth to explore one of them.
