In my job, get to buy an awful lot of plants. This isn’t the first time I’ve shared with you the contents of my shopping basket through the blog, and it’s reasonable to assume it won’t be the last. Plant porn might be entirely innocent, but it surely seems addictive.
I’ve finally found the resolve to tackle a task I should have grappled with months ago – removing a lavender hedge past its best. But, as it was the very first thing we planted in our blank canvass garden when we moved here ten years ago, I’m allowing myself a little trip down memory lane. #garden #gardens #gardening #plants #flowers #lavender
In the interests of full disclosure, I must mention at the outset that the lovely people at Haemmerlin UK were kind enough to send me a 110 litre Pick-Up barrow in exchange for a review on the blog. But, even in the unlikely scenario that the prospect of a grown man geeking out over wheelbarrows is something you’d ordinarily eschew, I’d urge you to read on, as this is a particularly well thought out piece of kit for the garden.
The awfully nice people at @burgonandball have sent me some of their marvellous garden tools in exchange for a review here on the blog – a timely offer, as I’ve bent yet another garden fork and left several hand tools behind me in the flower beds.

Last weekend, Ed and Josie Nugent turned a long-held dream into reality with the launch of Garden Sage Nurseries, a new nursery in Hassocks, East Sussex. I may have missed the grand opening, but I was keen to visit, and they soon had me lending a hand. #garden #gardens #gardening #plants #flowers
