Having recently moved into a house set in a vast wooded garden, I am looking to turn its green swathes into ‘flower-sprinkled turf’ which should make for bee-buzzing swards and butterfly-fluttering meadows.

My eye feasted on the outline of swell and sweep – on the wild colouring communicated to ridge and dell by moss, by heath-bell, by flower-sprinkled turf, by brilliant bracken, and mellow granite crag.
