About me

Hi all, my name is Pip and I'm from Sydney. I do not have much time for gardening, as I am now at business college four days a week with plenty of work to do, but I do wish that I could get into it more.

I have a relatively small garden, and I like growing herbs and annuals. My favourite thing to grow is snapdragons - so pretty!
My main garden consists of two sandstone tubs which are usually filled with annuals or short-lived plants - I change the design regularly. Right now I have four nasturtiums that are covering all the soil area, so there is nothing else there at the mo!

Of course my little Papillon x, Frances, is always willing to help out in the garden, even if 'helping' means 'digging up all Pip's bulbs and planting a meaty bone instead'!
