It all began in 2010 & follows the weekly ups and downs of garden work chronicling both successes and failures but most of all demonstrates the fun enjoyed by three people who regularly garden in all weathers.

Mowing Hoeing Sowing!

Genever tomatoes & lettuces!
A newly trained 20 year old grapevine
It's the busiest time of year! I knew it!  Arctic to tropical overnight! The grass is growing a mile a minute, weeds are appearing everywhere and the world's coldest spring has meant very late sowing! Everything is happening at once and I haven't even mentioned how fast everything is growing in my new Queenhouse!  I think I can safely say that the grapevine has survived its 5 weeks sudden exposure to late frosts and as our Hartley Botanic Sales manager has now delivered the vine eyes, it's now draped elegantly along the Queenhouse roof.  He also delivered the staging which we have now installed. It looks fab and we await a further delivery of the correct staging base. It's a veritable plant palace!
Meanwhile the apple trees are in blossom and what a view we have!!

We look at 24000 of these beauties!
