You can't lock down a green thumb!

Retired medical doctor Tony Newton and his wife Marie had already created "Britain's Best Garden," but have now done even more after spending lockdown tending their yard. Their garden in Walsall, West Midlands, is exploding with pinks, reds, greens and purples on their 1/4 acre plot of land.

Before lockdown, the couple had spent 38 years planting 3,000 flowers and plants, including 450 azaleas, 120 Japanese maples and 15 blue star junipers. Since they began self-isolating, the couple has continued to plant Acers and camellias, thanks to online shopping. They used to spend two hours a day gardening. Now they sometimes garden until dark.
