Henk Gerritsen owns Waltham Place which of course, is not far away. He has made an amazing wilderness garden and abides by 4 rules.
- fertilisers and chemicals are a mortal sin
- disturb soil as little as possible as its loses carbon so weed like a cow, wear gloves and rip off at ground level
- be frugal with water
- don’t whinge!!
