I started gardening about 3 years ago, as a means to cope with stress at work. What was first a chore turned into a form of therapy and today, I garden to clear my head and because, well, I quite simply love it. In late 2014 I decided to start this blog as a way to document my progress and showcase what we can do in our green spaces.
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.
