A new garden 

F&F has moved house.

So, it has been a few months since the last blog. That’s because I’ve been moving garden, from the beautiful Dream Garden to this little corner in London. It isn’t big and it isn’t posh. But it is my home now, and I love it.

When I moved here, of course, it was just a blank patio. The only green was the wild, wavy Solanum jasminoides.

I decided the best thing to do was to make the space as bright as possible. I bought bunting and brightly-coloured tub trugs, which I bored holes in at the bottom for drainage and filled with peat-free compost.



Everything seems to be growing happily. And though it’s not a big grand garden, I love the idea of having a little cheerful urban plot again.

    Your garden looks lovely and it truly proves theres so much you can do with just a small space wherever you live.Good design is essential for small space gardens. If you have limited room to grow as many of us do in urban areas, maximising the area you can garden in and wise plant selection are top priorities. The use of hanging baskets and narrow troughs are ideal, like what you’ve done. To save space and money instead of short lived annuals, consider perennials that last at least 2 or more years; and choose plants that perform multiple functions so you can use them in many ways.
