Where to position a garden office

This and other important questions about how a garden office can fit nicely into your garden are addressed in an excellent article by Liz Nicholson from expert garden designers Nicholsons who have been at Chelsea Flower Show this week as we reported on Wednesday. In 'How to create an inspiring garden office', on the Savills blog (she knows whereof she speaks as Nicholsons HQ built five work-from-home huts last year during the pandemic at their headquarters, pictured above). Read the full post at the link above but here's a snippet about planting for all seasons:

Planting trees and shrubs for seasonal interest will give added structure to any garden. Some of my favourite choices include Betula utilis jacquemontii, with its wonderful white stems that glow on winter mornings and soft apple-green shade in summer. Rowan trees are well known for attracting birds and buddleia bushes bring in butterflies, all adding interest. Lavender meanwhile is good for bees, winter architecture and herbal cookies. Most importantly, hang a bird table for those dreamy moments when you look up from your work and take in your fabulous surroundings.
