Having grown up in a flat with no access to a garden, I thought I only started showing interest in garden 3 years ago. Recently, however, I remembered sitting in the kitchen with my granddad watching him pod peas. I have also seen video footage of me as a 5-year-old running around public gardens, smelling, touching and telling the camera how lovely the flowers smelled. Opportunity. That’s what it’s all about.
Through this blog I want to show that it is possible to have plants and grow your own fruit and veg in virtually any space. Due to the current housing industry we are part of the thousands of renters who rent; so, I borrow gardens. I have made a point of creating a garden in every house we’ve lived in. There is no point in putting no effort into your home because you are renting. Temporary does not equal impersonal. True, it is unlikely you’ll be able to add a bed to the garden, and more often than not they are paved over. This is not necessarily a bad thing. Cue the container garden.
Join me on my quest to learn as much as I can about the fascinating world of horticulture. I want to grow my collection of herbs and medicinal plants. Wildlife is important to me, so I will explore different ways to attract it to the garden. I am slowly developing a style, which is more cottage garden and less knot garden. What will I be able to achieve with containers? There’s only one way to find out.
I am open to business opportunities, so go ahead and drop me an email! Additionally, follow me on the social media if you’d like to chat. Alternatively, you can leave a comment or find more of my work here!
