I bought this climbing rose from the ‘hospital bay’ of a local nursery a few years ago for £2.00.

A good prune, a sunny spot and a picket fence to climb along, she’s happy and thriving! 

Don’t dismiss garden centre ‘hospital bays’, with a little bit of love and a place to call home, they soon become showstoppers. Plants are pretty resilient.

Busy ‘back-breaking’ day sorting, repotting and styling this clients patio.

Swipe 👉🏼 for Before...

The bay trees were inherited by the client from her mum. The pots were broken and looking a bit past it. Some new bargain @bm_stores whisky barrels, some well rotted manure, new compost and they are looking much better. 🌳

Then it was a case of planting up some new and old pots with English & French Lavenders, Hydrangeas, Lupins, Heucheras, Pinks & Campanulas for some fragrance, colour & textures. 🌸

I rescued what old plants and herbs I could and then grouped the pots together on the terrace. ☀️ 

Will look great once all in bloom 🙌🏼

Another day of painting, upcycling and finding a very overgrown border. 

Weeded, dug over, mulched and ready to plant up in the new year 🙌🏼

🎅🏼Christmas Wreath 2️⃣0️⃣2️⃣0️⃣🎅🏼

I made 20 bespoke wreaths last year in aid of @streetvetuk_

This year, I’ve scaled it back and I’m making 4 with all proceeds going to @stmungos a brilliant homeless charity that will help homeless people with dogs (and other pets).

Thinking of running a workshop next year with all proceeds going to charity. If you’d be interested, register your interest by commenting below ⬇️

🌞 Sun Patio 🌞

Swipe ➡️ for Before 📸

Today’s project in a client’s garden. The wood cladding was in serious need of TLC so has been painted in @cuprinolsverige ‘Silver Birch’ to start tying the garden areas together.

Patio semi weeded and swept. There was rotted out trellis in front of the water butts which has now been removed. Plants cut back and the never ending supply of autumn leaves removed 🍂

This garden is so big, it’s a real project, but, we’re getting there. Slowly, but surely 🙌🏼

•Christmas Roses•

If you are looking for some great hardy perennials that provide winter colour to your garden, look no further than the trusty Hellebore or ‘Christmas Rose’.

It has a long flowering season, beautiful foliage and lots of colours to choose from; green, white, yellow, red, black, and many variations of pink and purple. Double blooms or single, spotted or freckle-free.

You can pick up small plants for £3.00 in @morrisons at the moment. Plant in borders or pots.

• Pesky Polystyrene •

Polystyrene is the Donald Trump of plastics, in other words, it’s the worst! You can’t recycle it. 😡

So to save it from landfill, keep it to break up in the bottom of your garden pots instead of old crocks and rocks to improve the drainage and help your plants flourish 🌷
