  • I found Joe Ronsley’s interview extremely interesting and enlightening. He has so much experience and knowledge of gardening, and he shares valuable information. I like his view of a garden as a landscape – not just flowerbeds. His woodland garden sounds exquisite, with the mix of trees and flowers, including rhododendrons and azaleas. Thanks to Steve Whysall for the interview.
