Head gardener Jenny Barnes, live from Cottesbrooke Hall and Gardens
Head gardener Jenny Barnes walks us through several of her pot designs at Cottesbrooke Hall and Gardens
To mark the publication of September's Gardens Illustrated, head gardener and GI columnist Jenny Barnes went live on Instagram from Cottesbrooke Hall and Gardens for our readers.
Jenny walked us through the many splendid pots she has planted throughout the estate and pickled out beautiful plants, including salvias and many more, that worked very well within her planting designs.
Jenny's column, Pots of Style, focuses on pot planting combinations and can be seen monthly in Gardens Illustrated.
Below you can catch up with her Instagram Live, which, due to a technical hitch, has not uploaded to our feed and instead has been cropped and uploaded here.

Jenny Barnes is head gardener at Cottesbrooke Estate and is leading the way on new techniques of rose pruning and training.
