Who’s Counting


This is a list of some of the plants I’m growing in the greenhouse and in pots and containers and they will change as I decide what I would like to try again or what new plants I would like to add.  I also hope this will be an inspiration for anyone who usually says “I don’t have a garden”, to look at the space they do have available, even if you can’t plant out in a garden, have you considered planting up?   Rainwater guttering attached to a shed or wall, can be used for shallow rooted plants like herbs and lettuces.  Amazing growing space can be made from pallets.  Just a little bit of thought and some help from Google
