Garden Update


It’s been way too long since I updated this blog – we’ve just been so busy over the last year renovating the derelict house and garden that we bought in August 2013!

As some of you may already know, we were also filmed for a BBC programme in the whilst we were transforming the back of our property from an overgrown wilderness into a productive garden!

The programme ‘Big Dreams, Small Spaces‘ was presented by Monty Don (legend) who visited us on several occasions to help and advise us as well as getting stuck in with the hard work! It aired in October 2014 but it’s repeated from time to time on BBC2!



We had such an amazing time recording the show and it also pushed us to achieve a lot more in the garden than we would have done without the pressure of tv cameras following our progress!

Here are some individual posts of the various projects that we’ve undertaken in the garden, both on camera and off, and eventually I’ll start to update on what we’re doing in the garden this year!

Clearing the Wilderness

Designing and Planning
