Building a Cottage Garden

Back in April my parents started work on their cottage garden.  The house had been rented out as a holiday home for years and the garden was a wilderness which they were trying to tame.  But with lots of hard work they have achieved in 5 months what I haven’t managed to achieve in 5 years!

April – It literally was just grass and they were dividing the 150ft garden into ‘rooms’ using trellis

June – the beds had been carved out and backbone plants added

My Dad and Husband had also erected the greenhouse which has helped with my parents saving money and growing their own plants

Early August – the garden looks amazing and it’s only in it’s first year.  There is a massive pumpkin patch which will provide all our halloween carving and I think my Mum has given sweet peas to literally everyone in her village.  I’m so proud of what they have done, if not more than a little envious!  They need to come to my house and sort out my garden!!
