The Peverels Gardens

Charlie and Sybilla moved to Peverels Farm in 2013, now home to four children, one dog, two kittens, three chickens, two ducks and the odd badger.

When they arrived they discovered roughly five acres of virgin soil below a giant elm hedge in which they set about building a new garden. This area was soon given the shorthand "skymeadow" and has since been subdivided into seven garden rooms that are all in various stages of development.

Charlie writes and talks about gardens. He has written for the Guardian Gardening Blog, The Telegraph and for local magazines as well as speaking on local radio and at events.
