    This year has been an amazing one for me!  Not only did I receive a Bronze Medal for my first Urban Garden at Chelsea.  But I built my biggest and best (if I say so myself) garden at Tatton Park.

    I think that it is safe to say I bit off a little more than I could chew by attempting to build two gardens at Tatton this year.  Sadly the little Back to Back Garden - Time Out was renamed as... 'The Neglected One!'  The plants I had arranged for the small garden sadly did not arrive, and were substituted.  Therefore the garden did not look like it did in my head when I was designing it, and further more I ran out of time.  We all agreed that the Show Garden - Aqua Life had to come first, and so took priority.  'Time Out' received a Bronze Medal, which considering all the problems was acceptable


  • Getting A Little Carried Away!

    I realised last night, as we were told it was definately time to leave the show ground, that I hadn't written a posting for a long time.  Therefore not telling the story of the construction so far.

    Last week we met on our plot for the first time, a large soiled rectangle.  It didn't so big, and certainly didn't look like we would fit everything in.  But we sprayed it up, and started excavating.  Wow, a swimming pool is very different.  This is my first natural swimming pond, and we have certainly built it as if it were here to stay.  The whole was dug very quickly, and the retaining walls were up almost instantly.
