About me

I live in an old farmhouse and with my husband we are working hard to transform what was an overgrown jungle of thistles, brambles and nettles.We also inherited numerous railway cabins, asbestos prefabs and industrial fridges(which we have thankfully cleared!) We live with our animals cats... Cinders and Bobbins, dogs... Poppy and Daisy, pigs Willourghby, Delilah, Lottie, Jasmine, Clover and Blossom and our chickens and bees too many to name! We have a wonderful veg garden with a greenhouse, raised beds and our new addition the polytunnel! Our flowers are limited to barrels dotted around the farm and our front borders! I would love to create a cottage garden full of flowers and herbs but have no idea where to start!
