The Twilight Garden: A guide to Enjoying Your Garden in the Evening Hours ~ Lia Leendertz


Some say that the twilight hours are the best time to enjoy a garden; a time when the spirit of the place really comes alive. It is also the time when many people pass front gardens on their return home, have a few spare minutes for garden maintenance, or want to enjoy the garden for entertaining. Full of easy maintenance advice, planting ideas for evening fragrance, colour, lighting, design, and attracting wildlife, this is a book for how people garden now. Front gardens, terraces, larger plots and containers will all be covered in an attempt to inspire everyone to transform their outdoor space into a twilight paradise.

Lia is a freelance garden writer who shares an allotment with several friends near her home in Bristol. A regular contributor to The Guardian and The Telegraph, she is a long-time advocate of organic and community growing, and has written many books on the subject. She has an award-winning blog, Midnight Brambling.

Plot 22 – Ep1 – Digging Back In Time

Published on Mar 21, 2014
Plot 22 is a ‘Who Do You Think You Are?’ for allotments. Garden writer Lia Leendertz wants to find out who has dug and planted in, played and worked on the very piece of soil she has thought of as her own for the past ten years. We’re going to journey back in time to reveal the past life of much loved plot in Bristol.

There will be wars and land grabs, waves of migration and changes of fashion, with this humble plot of land and the people who worked it telling these stories.

Lia is an award-winning garden writer who writes for The Guardian, The Telegraph, Gardens Illustrated, The Garden and more, and her north Bristol plot is well used as inspiration and location for her features. She and her husband Michael do the work, while their two young children climb trees, eat cake and dig ‘photographer traps’.
