Even if the Wisteria that we planted when we moved here has taken 10 years to bloom and is not really in an ideal place!
I didn’t plan the garden exactly it has evolved, but we did bring quite a few shrubs in pots from our gardens in London when we moved down here.
I tend to plant a few seeds in Spring and I buy established tomatoes and courgettes to plant in black buckets. I divide the contents of a ‘grow bag’ into each bucket, add a plant to each one, put them in the greenhouse and keep them well watered.
I can’t resist anything that gets reduced in the garden center so this year we have potatoes in special bags and trailing begonias in pots.
When something pops up unexpectedly I tend to leave it be, hence buttercups, forget-me-nots and marigolds in unexpected places!
I think I find it easier to commune with nature than I do with people.
The frogs and newts have started to show themselves in the pond which is how I like it!
