Where is Carol Klein’s garden?
The gardening with Carol Klein is filmed in Glebe Cottage, Carol’s Devon home.
The house is in Chittlehamholt near Umberleigh, where she has been growing unusual perennials for 30 years.
She had previously housed her kindergarten store, Glebe Cottage Plants, from there until complaints from her neighbors.
They didn’t like their wild approach to gardening.
Carol’s garden is a sea of different plants and garden styles.
Set on a series of terraces at different levels, Glebe Cottage is a haven for plant styles from around the world.
Who is her husband
Carol Klein is married to Neil Klein, 67.
The couple moved to Glebe Cottage in 1978.
He also performs at gardening with Carol Klein alongside her Lakeland Terrier Fifi.
They have two grown daughters, Annie and Alice.
Annie, 40, lives in California while Alice, 38, is closer to home in Lewisham – and recently gave birth to her second child.
Carol set out to meet her new grandson for the first time before the lockdown.
Speaking to The Telegraph, she said, “We just saw him before the lockdown.
“It was fantastic to have that hug, it keeps you going.”
