Put other sun rooms in the shade

This outdoor porch looked more shanty than chic. But with a little colour, as well as some well–chosen furnishings and accessories, it's now the perfect den to lounge away those lazy sunny days.


Posh up your porch EVERY inch of your home is too good to waste, so don't let a spare room, conservatory or porch become a dumping ground for boxes and cast–off furniture. Liberate dead spaces and give them a valuable use that will enhance your home life. Here, the Honey Boo Boo–style den has been replaced by a sophisticated outdoor room, perfect for afternoons in the warm sunshine... and, fingers crossed, there are plenty to come. Outdoor blinds BE inspired by far–flung hotels and use wooden blinds to create shade and privacy. If you're worried about weathering, opt for less expensive blinds or select models that have a clip–on/off mechanism so they can be removed or stored away for the winter months when you store your outdoor furniture. Find ready–made products at from just £18.98 for a 400mm–wide x 1200mm–drop burnished oak option. Tell a colour story SOME colours are brash but lovely, others calm and restful, so think about what mood you want to create before reaching for the paint brush. Does your porch lack direct sunlight? Would it benefit from a warm, sunny yellow? Or do you long for the cool tones of soft blue or lilac to adjust mood and stay cool? Dulux Blissful Blue paint offers a similar cool quality – a satinwood finish paint should withstand the elements in this sheltered porch.

GARDENS You are shore With Carol Klein of TV’s Gardeners’ World


Stones are a success

WE’VE been moving stones backwards and forwards to give our seaside garden a bit of a facelift. The only real props we have for it are these pebbles, some of which are quite large. We didn’t steal them from a beach, but took them from a skip at the Chelsea Flower Show one year. They had been chucked out by contractors who were dismantling one of the big gardens. Although it brought our lorry perilously close to being overweight on the journey home, we took the lot. They now have a new lease of life, winding their way between the plants in our seaside garden. Many have been removed and stored away in crates while we replant and we’ve had to shift some out of shot a few times when we’ve been filming, but now they need to go back to their rightful home. It’s good fun arranging them but surprisingly difficult to emulate the way they would look naturally.

■ Carol at Gardeners' World Live last year. It returned this week THERE’S been preparation of a different kind with Gardeners’ World Live this week. Running from Wednesday until tomorrow, it features the RHS Flower Show and lots of people from the world of gardening. I’m there, giving a series of talks in the Celebrity Theatre and on The Grow Your Own stage and signing copies of my latest book, Wild Flowers: Nature’s Own to Garden Grown. I’ll be illustrating some of my talks with images from the book and dishing out suggestions for your gardens. And there will be a whole host of wonderful plants and seeds to buy and take home to start your own propagation. The Good Food Show is running alongside Gardeners’ World Live at the NEC in Birmingham.

You can conjure up the feel of the seaside in your garden, no matter where you live, simply by choosing the right coastal plants


HE garden at Glebe Cottage isn’t huge but we are lucky in having a variety of situations which, to my delight, means we can grow a diverse range of plants. On a short stroll you can discover woodland (a few trees with shade-loving plants growing under them) then take in a boggy bit where a little stream creates moisture all year round. Across the track on the west there are open beds and borders where all manner of perennials live happily together, creating colour and interest for months on end. Some flower late into autumn when this part of the garden takes on a lovely warm glow. Separating these from the top of the garden are hot beds, where rich, deep soil affords a home for plants that love to luxuriate. Running through the hot beds is a thick box hedge in a waving line. It creates areas where, thanks to its protection, tender plants survive. Above it is the brick garden where, in small beds between brick paths, we experiment with foliage and plants with blue and yellow flowers. And tucked into one corner of this area, protected by the dry-stone wall of a long raised bed, is what has come to be known as the seaside garden. The soil is poor and I’ve spent ages making it poorer by digging in grit and sand. Its drainage is sharp now and this sheltered nook is probably the warmest part of the garden – it gets every second of sunshine. At the front of this bed is a huge stone. Its top is about a metre square and it’s perhaps a foot deep –

just perfect for lounging about in the sun, which is exactly what my mum used it for. It was the “first cup of tea and cigarette of the day” stone, or the “last gin and tonic and cigarette of the day” stone. It was Mum’s inspiration in imbuing the whole place with a relaxed holiday air that was responsible for it being called the seaside garden. We’ve tried to create

the atmosphere of the seaside without employing obvious tactics – not an anchor or a lobster pot in sight. Principally, it is the plants that conjure up the sound of waves. Familiar plants of cliff face and shingle shore are bound to do well in a position like this. Right now we’re remaking our seaside bed. One of the first plants to go in is the striking sea kale,

crambe maritima. In spring, crinkled tufts of indigo purple push their way through the shingle at the end of last year’s corky stems. Rapidly they open into a groundhugging rosette, their colour bleaching to glaucous grey blue, their frilly leaves becoming thicker and more succulent. The surface and shape of the leaves are designed to channel moisture into its centre. Clouds of



I MISSED the boat for sowing winter vegetables. What can I do now? Catherine Holmes


■ Grow your own carrots

NEVER fear, Catherine, there are lots of veg you can still sow successionally – carrots, beetroot, chard and perpetual spinach would

all work well. And you can also sow salads at any time of the year. In fact you can keep them going through the winter. Check seed companies' websites for winter vegetable plug plants.


I'VE got a few Astrantia “Roma” plants and I love them.

Can I grow more from seed? Jean Forsyth, by email


IT'S a sterile hybrid so sets no seed but you can divide your existing plants next winter when they become dormant. Pot them up and grow them on before planting outside.

■ Roma is a sterile hybrid

The ancient Greeks called the carrot a philtron, which translates to “love charm” 20

■ Carol remakes the bed of her seaside garden in Glebe Cottage white flowers are headily honey scented and followed by branching seed heads smothered in stone-coloured beads. Wherever they grow, plants have evolved, adapting themselves to the prevailing conditions. Coastal plants need to be tough. They are exposed to squally winds and baking sun. Often they have tap roots that plunge deep into the sand, searching for nutrients and fresh water and mooring them to the shore. In our gardens they employ the same techniques and although there may be little need to guard against being swept away, the ability to withstand drought is an important attribute. Drought-tolerant shrubs are few and far between. Several belong to the pea family, fixing nitrogen in surrounding soil. Coronilla valentina ‘Citrina’ has to be the star. Clustered heads of lemon pea flowers exude a fresh, fruity fragrance – a delight throughout the season and in mild winter spells. Scent is a feature of many maritime plants – in the exposed

conditions of the coast, insects are a rare sight so plants compete with fragrance. Many roses suffer in the sun but there are several coastal species that don’t turn a hair when the going gets dry. Rosa rugosa is often used as hedging and valued for glorious scented flowers and the orange hips that follow them, as well as for fresh green foliage turning yellow in autumn. It is an accommodating plant from the coasts of Japan and has naturalised on the Welsh shore. Sea hollies are much lauded although the majority are from the mountains of Europe and the Near East. Species such as Eryngium bourgatii, in particular its blue and violet forms, are versatile plants, thriving in arid conditions and gracing hot, dry beds with colour and sparkle from their spiky bracts. Eryngium maritimum is the true sea holly – difficult to grow unless in pure sand. See it for yourself on our coasts. Even in the heart of the city plants can summon in our minds the taste of salt or sound of shingle shifting in the waves.

NEW HOMES Get the right advice

By Ktie McLoughlin


COUPLE from Netherley have managed to move up the property ladder by letting their old house work for them. Emma and Mark Sheil feared they wouldn’t be able to move from their two-bedroom home in Netherton if they couldn’t find a buyer for their house. However, the couple visited Elan Homes’ Thornton Cross development, near Crosby, and, thanks to some savvy financial advice, they found a way to move – without having to sell their existing home. “The sales consultant put us in contact with an independent financial advisor who explained that if we rented out our old house we would be able buy one of the new homes at Thornton Cross,” explains Emma. “We didn’t imagine that we would be able to buy a property as nice as this and keep our old house, but when we looked at the figures, we realised that we could rent out our current property, convert to a buy-to-let mortgage, and buy our dream home.” Emma, 28, who is a dental nurse, and Mark, 29, an off-shore crane driver, looked at other homes in the surrounding area, but said nothing compared to the properties at Thornton Cross. “We fell in love with the fourbedroom Bunbury as it really is beautiful. There’s a lot more

space than we were used to, with a lovely open-plan kitchen and family room and everything’s finished off really nicely, which meant we could just move in,” Emma adds. “ The customer service was brilliant and everyone involved has been very helpful and made moving easy. I have been recommending Elan to anyone

who will listen!” Thornton Cross is an intimate development of just 13 properties. Four-bedroom homes are available in three styles, with prices from £249,995 on the open market or an initial outlay of £199,996 with Help to Buy. Andrew Robertson, senior sales manager for Elan Homes in the North, says: “We want people to

understand that we’re here to help make moving easy and will put them in touch with experts who will guide them through the various options.” ■ To find out more, visit the sales office in Water Street, open Thursday to Monday from 10am to 5pm.

The bigger picture If, like William and Kate, you’re expecting a new addition to the family, you may need more space at home. JULIA GRAY looks at what’s involved in building an extension

GIVE sheds, fences and other garden wood a great new look with Cuprinol Garden Shades (from £12.98 for 2.5ltr, B&Q). This paint range has a lovely matt finish and allows the texture of the woodgrain to show through – you can brush or spray it on and it provides four years of protection. There’s a vast range of colours to choose from, including pretty pinks, zingy greens and jades, and funky purples. Forget boring brown and breathe new life into your garden wood this summer!

YOU suggested using cut and polish products to restore dull laminate tops. Can you suggest anything to restore the sheen on a garden table? I think it's polyurethane and cost quite a bit several years ago. Susan Walshaw, by email I'D TRY something like AutoGlym Bumper & Trim gel. This restores exterior plastics to their original colour and finish. You might have to apply it each year but it's worth it. As the name suggests, it is used for car plastics but should work. As always, do a test on the back of a leg. It's dead easy to apply, all you need is a clean cloth. Or try a polyurethane paint that you can apply by aerosol but only if the table top is sturdy and does not flex at all.





N EXTENSION is a great way to make your home bigger and better, as long as you don’t make your garden too small in

the process. While building an extension won’t be cheap and will take some time, it’s often better than having to move home when your family has outgrown its current one. Depending on your home’s layout and as long as the new layout complies with building regulations, a ground-floor extension can be turned into pretty much anything, typically a kitchen-diner, especially in a side return, but also an extra living area or den, a home office or even a bedroom and en suite, perfect as a granny or nanny annex. If you can run to a two-storey extension, you’ll increase both your living and sleeping space, or can add a dressing room or extra bathroom upstairs, whatever you need. The problem with two-storey extensions is that they often require planning permission, whereas ground-floor extensions can often be done under your home’s permitted development rights, providing it has them – flats and maisonettes don’t and some houses have had theirs removed. If your home doesn’t have these rights or you want to build an extension that can’t be done under permitted development, you’ll have to go through the planning process, which can be lengthy,

dear diy donny


I AM desperate to get hold of Unibond Repair Stone For Good, which you featured a while ago. Julie Rowles expensive and frustrating. The government is changing the permitted development rules for three years (until May 30, 2016) so that terraced and semi-detached houses can extend to the rear by 6m (on the ground floor) without planning, or a whopping 8m for detached houses. This is double the usual size and so faced opposition in parliament. The agreed compromise is that the local council will have to be notified of a planned extension and then adjoining neighbours will be given the chance to object. To be done under permitted development, the extension must conform to the rules regarding width, height and materials, etc – see For example, extensions (and other buildings) mustn’t account for more than 50% of the land around the original house, and the width of a side extension mustn’t be more

than half the width of the original house. There are different rules for single and two-storey extensions and for rear and side ones (side extensions on designated land, which includes conservation areas, are not permitted development), so it can be quite complicated. With listed buildings, you’ll need listed building consent from the local council for any sort of extension. You should also check the terms of the lease if your home’s leasehold, as you’ll probably need the freeholder’s permission to build an extension. Any proposed extension along or close to a shared boundary with a neighbour falls under the Party Wall Act, meaning you’ll need a party wall agreement with the neighbour, which can be an expensive and frustrating process if there’s a dispute. While you can get flat-pack extensions, just as you can get flat-pack homes, most extensions are built in a more conventional way,
