I moved house recently and have a garden for the very first time. It’s titchy and was covered in ivy which we spent hours hacking down. I have no idea what’s growing in it – what I thought was a weed is actually honeysuckle. There’s a toad the size of a baby rabbit living under a rock and more snails than it’s possible to count. But I’ve become quite obsessed with cultivating this little patch and have spent amounts of money in Squires Garden Centre that I can’t even justify in And Other Stories!
The result is this…
A huge cold water tank of earth. And a sink to match. (I can claim no credit for the already growing green-leafed plants which were the handy work of the people at Squires).
You can’t see it but there are a million different types of bulbs and seeds in these two containers. My money is under that soil. 98% of me thinks not a lot is going to happen. 2% (which is secretly dominant) thinks I’m going to get a riotous cascade of colour and blooms to rival anything I was forced to watch on Gardeners’ World as a child.
I thought you might be interested in sharing this journey. (If not, at the least you can snigger when nothing happens). And I will report back to all of you waiting with baited breath…

Your secretly dominant 2% will be the winner! Wishing you as many happy hours in your garden as you’ve given us with your lovely books.
Thanks so much, Sue! I have my fingers crossed that something is going to grow! x

I love your sweet garden! I don’t have my own (garden) right now, so I’ll be living vicariously through yours. I hope all the bulbs, flowers and herbs come up!Me
Thanks Melissa, me too! I did panic a bit but have been told it’s too early to be panicking! Will update when something grows. xx
