I recently came across Hilton Carter in the most annoying way – by missing his talk at the Garden Museum. Not only did he launch his gardening book “Wild at heart” in this gorgeous greenhouse in Baltimore:
he’s also into fiddle leaf figs, which is music to a hipster like me. Check out his Instagram for more useful tips and gardening hints.
I cut in two
A long November night, and
place half under the coverlet,
Sweet-scented as a spring breeze.
And when he comes, I shall take it out,
Unroll it inch by inch to stretch the night.

When it’s bright around this time of year there’s a clarity to the light that doesn’t appear at any other point in the year. The hopefulness of these Constable sketches captures that same feeling exactly. Photo by @acuratorabroad
