my favourite place in suffolk is darsham nurseries – its a smaller version of petersham nurseries – with a lovely cafe/restaurant, gift shop and lots of interesting plants to buy. the food uses locally sourced seasonal ingredients- some of them grown at the nursery itself. the beautiful planting and vegetable garden and summer shed are all inspirational. they are now selling my book ‘stolen glimpses’ and a selection of my flower cards. i actually pass it on the way to my cottage, so it makes a good stopping place for a cup of tea and homemade cake plus a plant. i have really taken to succulents, and Laura has made the most amazing tray to cover my water butt container filled with succulents – but they are great plants to put indoors, especially in bathrooms.
