My first 'yarden'


 I thought i would share with you all my first ever 'yarden' from 4 years ago. All of the plants were grown from seed with no knowledge of anything. It snowballed from there and now it's my biggest passion (obsession!) in life and has helped immensely with my mental health and wellbeing. 

Just glad i have caught the bug young and have many many years of gardening ahead of me!

    It looked lovely and I think you have some artistic talent image  the draping of the cloth on the table looks really great. How does it look now? I'd love to see more pics. image

    That's very pretty, well done.  I love the coloured tin pots to the left of the picture, they are lovely.

    Like KEF, I would love to see more pictures image

    Have you seen the shabby chic thread (not implying it's shabby!), I say that because we like watering cans, jugs, quirky plant pots etc on there for planting things in image

    Gardening on the wild, windy west side of Dartmoor.

    Well done Karmag. Those sterile little spaces we sometimes have can be transformed with a bit of thought and some tlc. You'll get birds, bees and other insects coming in too which will be wonderful.

    I'm glad doing it has helped you too. Gardening's a lifeline for so many people of all ages. I hope the 'bug' stays with you and you continue enjoying it image

    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    I live in west central Scotland - not where that photo is...
