Arthur Parkinson transforms a cottage garden with pots

Up-and-coming young garden writer and designer Arthur Parkinson takes us round his pretty cottage garden and shows us how to make eye-catching displays in a pot

Arthur shares the beautiful result of a 'bulb lasagne' he planted, in which he layered bulbs to create a stunning display with long-term interest, including foliage for added texture. He also walks us around his lovely patio garden and tells us how to get the best out of sweet peas and pelargoniums.
