Hello , I’m Gill and I am an enthusiastic gardener and vegetable grower. I’m also a graphic designer specializing in publishing. The subject matter ranges from books about homes and architecture, to car magazines. So I love gardening, houses and cars! Is there anything more? Yes. Wine, art and travel. Actually there’s lots more, I forgot food, but I’ll stick to gardens here. So I’d like to share my experiences and a ton of ideas about the all-too-famous ‘Garden Room’ with you.
People think its easy-peasy having a small garden. But not so, its a much more intense as it really is all about the detail.
Just like your favorite room in your home, you want it to look gorgeous, maybe neat and tidy, possibly a little too ordered if you are like me.
It hasn’t all been plain sailing as you will see in the before photo here. But the builders could have done worse. I have ended up with a lot of walls. Other people walls. So its these that I am gradually making the most of with trellis that I have built myself. See my herb rack that has been a delight outside the kitchen.
Growing my own
Now it isn’t all about a little town garden. I have an allotment too which is the best thing I have ever done. And the most demanding and educational, which is why I have loads of stories to share with you. From the promising baby plants in the green house to the grandeur of the summer spectacle to the ultimate harvest.
