Tell us about your garden and what you're growing

My garden is mainly full of beautiful flowers and I love to watch each of them grow and bloom year after year. It's still a work in progress, but each year, more and more parts of it get 'finished' (if a garden is ever finished). I have grown vegetables in between my flowers before - last year I had a great bean teepee that my cat loved to sleep under. This year, my dad has just built me four raised beds. I have planted one of them with strawberries, lettuce, carrots and beetroot. My heritage seeds have just arrived and I'm about to start planting the rest of the veggies for this year. I hope I'll have enough space!

  • Hi Catherine-I have to confess I haven't started my cucumbers yet. My work life got busier than I like. I am looking foward to getting them going soon. Funny Giorgio-he really is a catnip addict. He'd have a big job chewing it all up here. It grows wild all over the place. My cats nibble it a bit.

    Glad to see you've joined PKT garden's page. Hope to see you in the garden again soon.


  • Hi Catherine, new friend :)

    I will pack up some geranium seedlings and a piece of stachys (won't be big though as I only have one plant) and will send them in the next couple of days; you should have them the next day.
