Although I no longer have a shop, we randomly open the house and garden on an ad-hoc basis. We hold pop-ups at Christmas, garden parties during the summer, and take stalls at fairs. We're holding a Garden Party on Sunday July 27th from 10 till 4. Read my Journal or email me for further information.

Join me, through the pages of this sequel to All my Eggs in one Basket, as I leave my much-loved home of thirty years and downsize to the seaside at Whitstable. This beautifully illustrated book charts progress as we convert a bungalow, plan a low-ish maintenance garden, plant an orchard and start again with chickens from scratch. Available via Paypal or by cheque from our on-line shop.

Keep up-to-date with goings-on at the Kitchen Garden-on-Sea with my blog, packed with news, seasonal recipes and pretty photos. I’ll try to remember to offer timely tips for those with hens and gardening advice. Catch up with my columns from the Sunday Telegraph and follow links to recommended websites that I love.
