Shirlie Kemp has revealed how she is getting her garden ready this summer and her reasons for letting her garden become overgrown.

Her choice of garden design features an array of plant varieties that have been left to their own devices, creating a wild, meadow look, which she claims also serves an important environmental purpose too.
