Transformation – complete!

The first photo here is of my transformed garden one year ago today (please note any member of the Hosepipe Police checking in, I’m not contravening the ban; the photo is 12 months old!)  The landscapers had packed away their wheelbarrows & tools and I had it all to myself.  I’d started placing out my ‘treasures’ in their pots, just getting a sense of where I would plant them – and the glorious iris in the foreground are what I bought at the NCCPG plant fair (mentioned in my previous post) last year – you can see why I’m hoping the iris grower will be there again this weekend!  This year it looks as if only one of the three will flower, and because it has been so chilly the flowers are still hiding in the stems.  But they will come.

One year ago today

And this is what my garden looks like today!
Every time I look at it I am amazed at how mature it looks in just a year.  The very wet April we’ve just had has done wonders, everything is so lush and leafy, and the bulbs are lasting for weeks rather than days – which is great, and more about them in a future post.

To everyone who has followed this blog so far, thank you for joining the journey – of course this is only the beginning of the story, but now you know how it started.

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.
