Mrs Ned Dybvig

‘Our hedgerows are our single biggest Nature reserve’ • In his birthday message, The Prince of Wales advocates the planting of more vital hedgerows, as well as new stands of trees, to commemorate the many who have lost their lives in the Covid-19 pandemic

The ‘never bloomless’ hills • Colour never dies in this landscape that inspired great poetry

A brief history of trees • Meetings of politicians and kings, gruesome murders, untimely deaths, drunken bets and flights of utter fantasy: our ancient trees have borne witness to them all, says Mark Hooper

The Soldier

Brooke and the Georgians

What they said

The heart of the Poppy Factory • One hundred years ago, one man realised the potential of the first Poppy Appeal. Andrew Green explores Maj George Howson’s enduring legacy

Where poppies grow

To win and win again • Awarded the Victoria Cross at Gallipoli aged 18, then a Military Cross at the Somme, 2nd-Lt George Moor’s seldom-heard story is nothing short of a Classical tragedy, says John Lewis-Stempel

A miraculous survival • In the second of two articles on this remarkable castle, John Goodall looks at the Tudor great chamber and the bizarre story of how this superb interior was lost and restored

Coade for stone • This month is the 200th anniversary of the death of Eleanor Coade, then in her eighties, who gave her name to a fired, vitifried stoneware. It enjoyed use across Britain–and the globe –as John Goodall discovers

A blast from the past • A prep-school teacher with a passion for gardening awakened a lifelong love of horseradish in Tom Parker Bowles, who is fond of pairing the powerfully hot root with roast beef, boiled eggs and smoked fish

Jeremy Lee’s smoked-eel sandwich

Cellar society • Keep wine and cocktails elegant with Hetty Lintell’s choice of stylish and useful accessories

All dressed up • The party season is upon us, so dress to the nines–we have more than enough catching up to do

Bright ideas • Amelia Thorpe shines a light on the latest fittings and shades

Pick of the ceiling lights

Time to switch? • There are a growing number of alternatives to the plastic light switch, finds Arabella Youens

What lies beneath • Secret passages and colourful characters fill the histories of two impressive country houses in Kent

A river runs...
