Tricky Veggies: The 5 Most Difficult Vegetables to Grow

Growing your food is one of the simplest ways to enjoy freshly-picked and chemical free produce any time of the day. Doing so will not only save you money but more importantly, protect the environment by cutting back your home’s carbon footprint. Vegetable gardening is not as straightforward as planting seeds, watering, and waiting for them to mature into something delicious. It takes time, patience, and knowledge especially when it comes to deciding which plants to grow.

6 on Saturday: it’s all about peonies!

I have a love affair with peonies. They are my favourite flower. I know that they tease us with their buds, flower quickly and then die back but the glory of their flowers is so beautiful for me that I would happily wait all year for just one day of these beautiful blooms! This week my 6 on Saturday is dedicated to peonies. This meme was started over at The Propergator. It’s a way of noting six things in your garden, right now and is a fun meme to join in with.

My Glorious Gardens April Linky Round Up Post

Here is the April #MyGloriousGardens Round up post! Hasn’t the weather been strange? One minute it’s boiling hot and the next, freezing cold here in Wiltshire. My garden is confused and so am I!
Anyway, we had 16 linkers in April with some lovely posts. I’m afraid a couple of links led nowhere so I can’t comment on these or read them. Thank you to everyone for taking part and for continuing to grow this garden linky party. As always, I share your posts on Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest and StumbleUpon so I hope that you have new readers finding your blogs. If you haven’t yet commented on any posts, please do that so that everyone who links up gets some comments.

6 Top Tips For Creating a Garden From Scratch.

There are many people that often tell me, “I wouldn’t know where to start in my garden!” Or “My garden is a pile of weeds so there is no point doing anything.” That’s such a shame as gardening is such a healthy hobby. It’s good for us physically and it’s good for the soul as it brings such pleasure.
