Spades, Space and Spices: Your Picture Perfect Family Garden

Your garden is a sweet and safe sanctuary which is enjoyed all year round by your family. The one place the children feel free and easy is outside on the grass; fiddling with the grubby soil, getting their knees muddy and kicking a ball into the dainty flower beds, that’s what playing in the garden is all about.

The Best Birthday Flowers To give as a Treat to an Allergy Sufferer

There is evidence that the giving of flowers for birthdays, reaches as far back as the middle ages. Isn’t that crazy?

Taking a walk around the gardens

At the weekend I had a little walk around my garden and the parents garden. It is beautiful to just take in all the new growth and flowers that are starting to come out.
