The weather has changed, it’s positively Autumnal now. The nights are drawing in. We’re still living in our teeny, tiny conservatory due to the building works and our garden is more important to us than ever for a little space, but even that has areas filled with rubble. So I got me a solar powered sheep from Red Candy, just to add a little joy to the day and beauty in the evenings.Continue reading Adding a little joy to the garden
I love our garden and now it’s summer I love nothing more than sitting out in the evenings and making the most of it. An easy way to create a lovely atmosphere is by adding some lighting to your garden. Solar lighting is the easiest way to do that and I have been sent some fabulous KooPower Solar Lights that I am just obsessed with.Continue reading KooPower Garden Solar Lights
Just in time for summer, Get Out and Grow, is launching an incentive encouraging students to head outside and get planting, growing and learning about just where fruit and vegetables come from.
Why? Because according to a recent survey, 90% of children said that they would like a garden at school and at one primary school in Lincolnshire, a school garden made all the difference when it came to pupil’s behaviour.Continue reading Get Out and Grow launches school gardening kit giveaway

It’s not often challenges are more pleasurable than getting to spend some time in the garden with my best boy. So I was really happy to join in with the Sunflower Growing Challenge from GBC Group.
GBC sent L and I a lovely little gift box with everything we needed to plant our seeds. Some fab little garden tools for L, plant labels, a measuring tape so we can see how high they grow and of course the seeds.
The weather is turning and like animals coming out from hibernation I’ve noticed my neighbours out in their gardens, starting to do the jobs they’ve been putting off and I am amongst them!
This year it looks like far more of the gardening will be falling on my shoulders so I have been eager to find a few things to make my life easier.
This plus that equals….my Spring wish list
Here’s the latest instalment in my series of posts all about what makes our lives here at home tick. This week is all about a few things I would like to get sorted now that Spring has sprung.
