Rediculously excited to post the first photo of my new allotment. I know it doesn’t look much, but I haven’t had a garden for a year and couldn’t bear another year of being gardenless. So here is the solution! My own bit of land and already a strawberry bed in position. It’s going to need a shed and a bench and a compost bin so if anyone is getting rid of such things or any allotment type stuff, all would be gratefully received. Really looking forward to meeting the allotment community and all they can teach me. I’ve grown lots of veg before but never in larger beds. I will also be adding water and a cut flower garden. I cannot wait to get stuck in 🍏#allotmentlife #gardendesignerhertfordshire #gardendesigneressex #biodiversity #plantingforwildlife #growyourown #bramleyapplegardendesign ...

🍏 Golden Jubilee Cottage is our second garden to become a finalist in the APL 2024 Awards. An interesting project working with a lot of mature planting and some fabulous sculpture.

🍏 Lovely visit today @westacrehome, meeting the residents, relatives and staff to discuss ideas for their new garden. The residents have had great fun creating a mood board and there were some great ideas to consider that will ensure the garden is an accessible and therapeutic space for everyone to enjoy. This project is close to my heart with my own Mum living with Dementia and my volunteer work with the @alzheimerssoc #gardendesign #gardendesigner #gardendesignerhertfordshire #gardendesignerhampshire #gardendesignerberkshire #gardendesignercambridgeshire #therapeuticgardens #carehomelife #accessiblegardendesign #bramleyapplegardendesign ...
