Mike’s Monthly Meander – June 2020

Lockdown. Lupins. Coronavirus. Cosmos. Distancing. Delphiniums. It’s June 2020!

Here, as always is ‘Mike’s Monthly Meander’ around the garden. The garden is looking fabulous this month, with roses, lavenders, geraniums and even a few dahlias coming out to play. So please click the link below to have a wander around the garden with me.

Job-wise, June is the month for mowing and edging lawns, feeding containers weekly (Friday Feed), watering containers daily and deadheading to prolong flowering.

This month’s Monthly Meander is located on my Instagram IGTV feed, so why not FOLLOW me on INSTAGRAM to see regular gardening posts, videos and much more. You’ll find me under @mikepalmer01.

Mike chats to… Ann-Marie Powell

Following my chat with world-renowned garden designer, Jo Thompson last week, I contacted garden designer, Ann-Marie Powell to invite her to have a chat with me. 

Since the COVID-19 lockdown commenced in March 2020, Ann-Marie has fronted her extremely popular, daily, live Instagram feed, My Real Garden. The attention of garden lovers across the globe has been caught by Ann-Marie as she chats openly, passionately and with such great humour about her garden and her life during lockdown.

I spoke to Ann-Marie about My Real Garden, designing show gardens, broadcasting, writing and lots more.
