My postage stamp garden


This is the first year of gardening here. We moved back in November 2015. Tiny garden with not much in the way of flower beds but west facing so lots of sunshine.

March 2016

August 2016

Still lots to do. I might take out some slabs and widen the borders but enjoy gardening in pots.

My mother used to call her sister's garden 'A pocket
handkerchief garden.'

I think you have done a great job to make the most of your space,Cammomile..I love pot gardening too..and you will have already found out how much easier it is to look after..lots more time to sit in your garden chair..and just look,plan,and generally take life easy :o)

Snap Sandra, I was just going to say about having made the most of the space - and how good to have a strong brick wall to grow things against. I have lots of space but no walls (the house walls aren't suitable)
Small "courtyard gardens" can be lovely and you are well on the way!

Definitely,Cammomile..I am more than happy with my postage stamp garden too..How on earth I manage to still find plenty to do in it,beats me ..or should that be,it looks as though I am being quite busy..I think it's called pottering :o)

I have a pretty large garden Cammomile but I still have a lot of plants in pots. It is just a selection of miniature gardens.

You may say it's small but it seems packed with plants and all looking wonderfully healthy. I assume it's a Hosta in the corner of the fifth picture? It looks amazing and from this vantage point no slug damage at all - you must share your secret on how you are keeping them at bay, most people are having a nightmare with them this year!
Pots always look terrific (when looked after properly) and with your smaller garden probably get all the attention that they need. It certainly looks well tended.

Thanks, although the hostas are getting a bit chewed now. I put slug pellets around their roots, frequently.
