The Dahlia Papers

My name is Non Morris. I am a garden designer based in South London and Suffolk and I write about gardens. I am interested in the close observation of plants – both in a garden context and in the wild – and in applying this knowledge intensively to create gardens that are comfortable and enriching places to be all year round. I have always had a strong visual focus to my work. My background is in art history and film and television. The Dahlia Papers is a journal of what I am looking at and thinking about – it is about plants and gardens but also about art, photography, design, architecture and the environment. I aim to write a post every month.

I live in Dorset. I absolutely love my garden and am out there at every opportunity. I also write. Work gets in the way of both of these pursuits but is a necessity….at the moment!

Diary of a Brussels Kitchen Garden

This Blog / Website is about vegetable growing in a small urban garden in a large modern city. With lack of growing area it deals with vertical growing and use of elevational space, growing from both a raised soil bed and a range of pots and containers. The aim is to get maximum plant growth out of minimal available space.

Dig My Veg

My blog is about my small kitchen garden here in Somerset. The garden is my antidote to work life so my approach to gardening is pretty relaxed. It’s about putting things into perspective and enjoying the moment as much as it is about growing and cooking my own fresh fruit and vegetables.

Dig With Dorris

I am a full-time Mum and plant mad person who also works as a creator of gardens. I can provide design and maintenance advice, create gardens from scratch, update garden planting schemes as well as garden maintenance. Yep, I am a great weeder.

I have worked with the owner of a walled garden in Winslow, Bucks. to update and restore her garden to its former splendor and beyond, into a garden style more befitting modern family life.

I have carried out a number of designs which range from planting plans to complete new design.
