Margot Pattison is a keen gardener. In 2002 she designed and planted this traditional knot garden at her home in Oxfordshire.
You can see how it was done here.
It's well-established now (June 2007) as you can see from the pic on the right, although the hot, dry summer of 2006 caused some anxiety.
These shots show the garden
in March 2005 (top)
and covered in snow in February 2007 (middle).
The next part of the plan is to plant lavender in the outer sections (bottom).
