I’m lucky to have a small west facing garden and patio and am trying to grow vegetables and herbs. This is more successful than in my previous garden which faced north and was very shady. I didn’t have much success there.
My blog is where I record what I’ve done and whether it worked or not… I also take photos to show that however small your patio or garden is, you can grow some lovely things!
I’m inspired by my Mum & Dad (keen gardeners) and the people whose books and TV shows I’ve read and watched.

My favourite ‘garden’ places are:
- Heligan Gardens
- Barbara Hepworth garden
- Haddon Hall and gardens
- Levens Hall and gardens
- Muncaster Castle and gardens
I also have another blog which is about my research into my family history and surname.
