My tiny, enclosed back yard in a densely populated urban and quite neglected area. Mostly paved and gravel with one flower bed and lots of pots, but I'm full of plans for some raised beds built on top of some of the concreted areas. So loving having a go at growing some of my own flowers, fruit and veg and learning the basics. A little haven for me and my young son who is enjoying learning with me. Keen to attract insects and birds to our little space and trying to plant and plan accordingly. Planting so far mostly cottage garden, fragrant and pretty with a little container veg and herb plot.
