Mark Hillsden writes on environmental issues for Regeneration & Renewal; on general lifestyle for Maxim, JACK, Country Walking; and on gardening for The Times. Jeremy Cook and Anna Marsden had only previously been exposed to gardening through their keen and knowledgeable mothers. In 1986 they bought a partially converted barn on what might flatteringly be described as a building site. The only living element was a rather sorry looking silver birch. Over the succeeding 18 years they experienced first hand every conceivable aspect of gardening from initial design and construction to planting and development. Photographs of the garden have appeared in Garden Answers and their story, Starting from Scratch, is well told and illustrated in the magazine The Gardener. They open their garden for viewing once a year
