For the ultimate wild garden inspiration look no further than the Miranda Brooks designed gardens at the Long Island home of US Vogue Editor, Anna Wintour. English-born Brooks has created a series of dreamy, romantic gardens and meadows that have the effortless charm of the very finest English gardens but with none of the formality or fuss.

You can read the full interview published in T Magazine (New York Times) and if you have a couple of minutes to spare, this video will whisk you off for a few moments to the wild garden and into Miranda’s world.
