The Archers, South Garden (KT70)

Styles: Child friendly, English cottage, Wildlife

This garden faces South and is mainly laid to lawn with a paved seating area and a couple of borders. One half of the garden is surrounded by a copper beech hedge. There are 3 borders one which is a mix of sun loving perennials, bulbs, grasses and rose the second which is full sun with lavender, rosemary and geranium pheum, the third is more shady and is great in Spring with hellebores followed by hydrangeas then white anemones. This garden has grown from the usual beginners problem of buying one of everything you like, which unfortunately has ended up with a slightly messy look. In 2011 I aim to weed out those not earning their keep and bulk up the displays of the better performers to get more impact.

About me
Busy working mum, with more ideas than time! I have been pottering in our garden for 10 years, with the usual challenges of providing a fun play space for children, somewhere to entertain and a garden that gives me that buzz of seeing something flourish and support the local wildlife.

Gardening expertise
Very Keen

Biggest gardening accomplishments
A lovely spring border in the shade this year, with hellebores, primroses, Iris and spring bulbs. It made my heart sing! Built three veg beds from scrap wood in the cold and wet in February which now feature Garlic, Onions, Carrots and Potatoes. My first proper venture into the edible garden.

Biggest gardening frustrations
Planting perrenials with great hopes, only for them to die/disappear either the first year planted or through their first winter.

The gardening project I am currently working on
Veg beds and creating a wild flower area.
