  • Planting Bulbs for Spring

    Gardening is all about looking forwards. It’s this whole act of planning for the next season that I love, and one of the reasons that gardening is so good for the soul. I’ve been thinking of how I want the garden to be in Spring and so have ordered a ton of bulbs from Farmer Gracy. Their bulbs are always really good quality and they have a great range available.…

  • My North East Facing Garden in August – A Round Up

    It’s been a funny old time recently. The Covid-19 lockdown has certainly provided me with more time to spend in the garden and I’ve been able to keep on top of things there a bit more. Usually by this time of year the garden has to be self sufficient as I’m so busy with work, but with most of my work postponing until next year, I’m able to enjoy some…

I’m sure a lot of other people are in the same boat. Our lawn has become really parched. We have clay soil, which is usually too wet and means the grass dies over winter. This summer it…

  • My North-East Facing Garden in June

    Hi! I hope you’re well? Here’s an update on my north-east facing garden in June. Let’s see what’s flowering in this Yorkshire hillside garden in June. We’ve had a mini heatwave! It’s been a lovely few weeks of hot sunny days and nice cool nights and not a drop of rain. I had a quiet week of work and spent a lovely few days pottering in the garden and catching…
