The lower ter­race of Char­lie and Ben’s roof gar­den is in­cred­i­bly pri­vate thanks to high trel­lis fenc­ing cov­ered in Trach­e­losper­mum jas­mi­noides. Gen­er­ously planted con­tain­ers picked up from sal­vage yards even in­clude a ‘Scrump­tious’ ap­ple tree. A mar­ble-topped ta­ble, picked up at auc­tion is used to dis­play ter­ra­cotta pots of suc­cu­lents and dou­bles as a serv­ing ta­ble. Char­lie’s beloved dahlias pop up ev­ery­where, in­clud­ing these ‘Bishop of Auck­land’ (fore­ground) and ‘Ed­in­burgh’. Florist Char­lie Mc­Cormick (right) with his hus­band, in­te­rior de­signer Ben Pen­treath.
