4/7. Architect Edwin Lutyens and garden designer Gertrude Jekyll joined forces to craft a quintessential house-and-garden style in the first part of the 20th century that, arguably, continues to dominate landscaping today. Diarmuid Gavin creates a herbaceous border using Jekyll's ideas about colour and shape, and plants shrubs on either side of a Lutyens-inspired water rill, which leads down to a sunken pool. Meanwhile Jane Owen visits the exuberant garden at Nymans in West Sussex.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any

- not those of today.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
