About my garden: This is our second year in this garden. Last year was a right off with sorting the house and a new baby! The previous year we spent in a country cottage with half an acre where something clicked and I fell in love with everything green! Lots of trial and error then and now with growing vegetables, berries and some ornamentals. While I loved the old garden the house was not ideal. Now we live In a suitable house but have a smaller, sloped garden. Soil drainage problems soon to be sorted & until then there are lots of things growing in pots. I've got some climbers going on that I like, Love my two little Japanese maples such beautiful colours in season and a Fatsia japonica that is growing well - nice green year round! LOVE heather and fern, wanted to call the baby one of these- wasnt allowed lol! fabulous wicklow heather on nearby walking trails made me want some in the garden! some didnt go too well :( some lavender going on - get the bees in. Bedding plants and a few bulbs going on to
More about me: Busy mom and an art & garden enthusiast. Enjoying books on off grid living, sustainability and permaculture. Enjoy the countryside and the beautiful coast line here in Wicklow. Pretty amateur vegetable grower, this being my third year at it and now in a new garden. Keen to involve kids and eat healthy homegrown foods as much as possible.
