Mediterranean style. AS our climate becomes milder in the SW of England it is becoming increasingly possible to have a taste of our Mediterranean holiday destinations at home. We do have a very particularly English take on this style which is generally romantic, scented and based mainly on the gardens of Provence. Mounds of lavender, an olive tree, terracotta pots, pretty wrought iron garden furniture, gravel and a glass of wine sums up the look. This is actually a pretty good style for our small gardens though London clay is not ideal so lots of grit please and pots.
