About The Garden
I find gardening relaxing, and enjoy working hard or simply pottering about. I grow a range of garden plants and vegetables, some successfully and some
Recently, I started growing plants for resale to raise money for the charity Porridge and Rice that
supports schools in the Nairobi slums, home to some of the poorest people in the world.
These beautiful little flowers usher in Spring, heralding colour and warmth returning to the garden.
The wide range of colours and sizes of daffodils available, make these plants a must-have for the Spring garden.
The vibrant yellow and prolific flowers provide a delightful carpet for the Spring border.
It has taken over 20 years for this magnolia to reach its current size, and it has been worth the wait.
As the daffodils fade, tulips take over with fluorescent, dramatic colours on tall stems.
Giant hostas provide architectural impact in shady areas in the garden.
A good rhubarb plant produces an endless source of delicious deserts.
When it flowers, it dominates its corner of the garden with its large white flowers.
The tall colourful spires bring eye-catching summer colour to the garden.
If you are looking for plants, I regularly pot up seedlings and cuttings
to sell from my garden to raise money for
Porridge and Rice, a small education charity helping children in the Nairobi slums.
If you have any plastic plant pots that you do not want, please let me have them. I pot up plants to sell at summer fairs to raise money for the charity
that I support,
Porridge and Rice.
