About Us

We’re Helen, Richard, Henry & Sebastian Lee, welcome to our blog!


We (Richard and Helen) have spent the past few years flitting between the South of France and the UK, since the arrival of Henry we’ve been living on the outskirts of a small village in the north of England in a house and garden that we’ve recently renovated!

As soon as Henry was born we involved him in the garden as much as we could, now he’s one year old and already harvesting vegetables and eating directly from the fruit garden! Use the #GardeningWithBoys hashtag to follow his development in the garden!

In the ‘Garden Renovation’ section of the blog, we share how we did it and a few tips that hopefully will help others who are taking on their own renovation!


In 2013/2014, we were lucky enough to feature in the BBC2 programme Big Dreams, Small Spaces, and had the honour of working alongside the legend that is Monty Don! Check out the Big Dreams, Small Spaces section of the blog for more about that!


We also love visiting working kitchen gardens around the UK to get inspiration and ideas for our own plot!

  1. Hello – found this from your Facebook profile (thanks for liking my French Village Diaries page). From reading a few bits here it seems we are from the same seed packet, I’ve bookmarked this page and will be back.

  2. Hi Jacqui!

    Thank you for stopping by and for your lovely comment!

    I’m loving finding new blogs and pages on Facebook, yours certainly makes for fascinating reading! We’re very new at all this, so we’re looking for tips and advice! 🙂

    Helen x
