What is a garden?

“A garden is a grand teacher. It teaches patience and careful watchfulness; it teaches industry and thrift; above all it teaches entire trust”

Always ready for a hug. 14/10 for posing like a pro. Will always hug.

Sowing the seeds – what’s next?

Sowing seeds

Before and after one year

So about a year ago I moved gardens with one of my favourite clients  and one of the new things we had was a vegetable garden. I just had to find it. This July we had moved several standard roses into the space, covered alot of the weeded ground with membrane so I could get on with other jobs in the garden, and planted some herbs, strawberries and grew things like coriander and rocket from seed.

I also ventured into a raspberry cage the size of the average London.

It’s now on the way to being a lovely sight, and the raspberries are coming along a treat.

Today’s ‘helper’

This beauty was a bit hot today, so hid in the sweetcorn and decided to sneeze loudly and give me a fright. 13/10 for sneakiness and keeping me on my wellies. Will be surprised by again.
