Happy Earth Day!

This is for all fellow gardeners out there working to make their plot, whatever the size, beautiful. Here in the Surrey Hills it is typical April weather, showers and sunshine; just perfect for making the flowers grow and helping to create an English country garden. As I write this it is raining and the sky is dark grey, but in turn that makes all the fresh green foliage glow. Likewise I know that the bluebell woods nearby will be getting ready to look their best – and the perfume of a bluebell wood, after a shower of rain, is something to be experienced.

In celebration of Earth Day I give you a photo of my favourite bluebell wood.

About Sara Davison

I've been gardening as long as I can remember; initially as a child, learning from my mother, and then with each successive garden I've owned, I've expanded my knowledge and my plant collection. Starting Spring 2014 I'm taking my first steps as a flower farmer, growing British flowers for cutting on an acre of rented farmland in the Surrey Hills.

  1. I love your bluebell wood!

  2. I worked next to a bluebell wood once, near Theale in Berkshire. Was the reason I took the job, and it was worth it (especially as I moved up to London come summer time)!
