grow with your garden…
Hello! I'm Sarah and I’m here to inspire you to enjoy your garden more. If you feel daunted by your garden - whether you’re a complete beginner or an experienced gardener but need some design advice - I hope I can help.
It is so worthwhile spending time, energy and money on our gardens. They give loads back in terms of supporting our personal wellbeing and happiness, not to mention wonderful extra space at home, but perhaps you don’t know where to start or are caught up with so many ideas you don’t which way to turn first.
I’ve been there and in my blog I share my journey. I’m creating a new garden in Oxfordshire having left a sweet little garden I loved and that I developed from scratch when it was literally just a lawn. My new garden is spacious and a bit daunting to tell the truth. The previous owners loved lawn and formal hedges and not much else so I’m working to bring some soul, plants and wildlife, into the garden and it’s quite an under-taking.
My wonderful new greenhouse was installed in early spring 2019 and I began my journey growing seeds and vegetables. We also created some new beds to define the lawn space and offer opportunities for planting. At the moment the new beds are sown with a meadow mix whilst I design the new natural style planting that will echo the landscape beyond the garden.
Follow my experiences here and please do let me know if you have any questions or thoughts you’d like to share or have answered.
