Now I know this is absolutely fantastic!
Diana hosts the best organic gardening course in the world.
The magic of her gentle ways can be seen in her graduates lives and gardens.
I was looking at a group photo from our recent visit to Andrews.
I think everyone in that photo has been involved in Diana's gardening course in some way.
