All Things Garden

The garden is definitely my happy place. Some people meditate, some people exercise, some people pray. . ..well I garden. It gives me peace and happiness and definitely gives me great pleasure to share what I do, with others. My grandfather was a market gardener, my mother a florist and our daughter (born on my mum’s birthday) is also a florist. I guess you could say, it is in the blood. Here are just a few of the pots I’ve planted up in all types of vessels, containers and pots. I hope you enjoy looking at the photos of plants that have already sold but if there is anything you fall in love with, let me know and I can hopefully reproduce something similar.

This bird bath didn’t hold water anymore so it was perfect for potting up. A broken statue fitted perfectly into the middle of all the succulents.
