Regular readers will know that I’ve recently started a garden re-design, Project Garden, with A LOT of help from my mum. She’s a keen gardener, and has always come over to mine and taken over my garden, too! She retired at Christmas, and since then, has been spending hours and hours outside on her garden, and is gaining huge satisfaction from doing it. She’s also got plenty of cuttings on the go for me, and gave me my ‘hand-me-down’ herb garden, as it was all from herbs that she had. We’ve been enjoying a fair few visits to garden centres together recently, and I know she’s pleased that I’m finally taking an interest in one of her greatest passions. With all of this in mind, I felt like it was time to stroll through her garden and share a few photos with you, for this week’s How Does Your Garden Grow?


Just a few of the highlights. There’s also a big raised pond in there, fruit trees, a huge patio full of pots and a creepy crawly hotel in the making. Thought she deserved a post dedicated to her :-)

  1. Oh she does deserve it – how great to have such knowledgeable help at hand. Your gardens looking so green and lush, thriving! I bet your tomatoes taste fine – we’ve been shnaffling our little orange ones here. Beautiful sweet peas- my favourite plant x
    I’d be very interested to see your finished creepy crawly hotel – Kitty is forever turning over logs to find and pick up earwigs and beetles, it’s something I’d love to make too.

    Thanks for sharing x

  2. You are right to share some photos of your mum’s garden as it looks fantastic! How wonderful to have that as inspiration for your own space, especially with shared plants and seeds. Good luck with Project Garden!

    • Thank you – felt it was worth sharing! Project Garden has had a few new plants added this week, so progress is being made..! Thanks :)

    • They are amazing. They’re my mum’s, as mine haven’t done too well either. She’s been bringing me bunches of them round every time she visits!

    • I honestly wouldn’t have a clue where to start without her. I’ve become quite passionate about gardening, literally in the last couple of months. It’s only taken her 36 years to get me interested..!

    • It’s brilliant – I wouldn’t know where to start without her. It’s great to be able to talk about and plan it together – all very excited chatter!

    • I have lavender cuttings on the way from that :-) And I’ve had so many bunches of sweet peas – gorgeous scent. It is a lovely space, thanks
