My garden is a walled cottage garden in the center of town, I used to have lots of flowers, roses and some shrubs, and the only vegetables were runner beans.
I ve kept the roses, Johnsons Blue geranium and lavender, and grow lots of vegetables and salad in troughs and large wooden boxes made from pallets, as well as opening up more garden by lifting slabs.
Importing soil and compost can be difficult due to parking problems.
I grew all our vegetables except cauliflowers and peas last year, and have flowers on my broad beans I set in November, and we re eating lettuce I grew under cloches over the winter, as well as purple sprouting broccoli.
This year I m hoping to grow peppers, cucumbers and courgettes, as well as tomatoes, lettuce, all the beans, carrots beetroot etc.
I m so enjoying my gardening, and can t wait to get outside every morning to see how all my plants are doing. And love harvesting my veg and getting them straight in the saucepan or steamer, and lettuce and tomatoes from garden to salad in minutes.
