There are so many things I simply must have in the garden, there are the big things like a greenhouse, a shed and a rustic table.
Then there are the pots, I want terracotta pots in various shapes and sizes. I need lots of accessories of course to make the garden feel ours and special.
Garden tools are also essential, we are missing few.
And the most important things – the flowers and herbs.
It will take some time to make the garden as we want it. The first year will be trial and error as well as discovering what’s already in here.
My kitchen has been turned into a nursery for now, luckily it is very sunny so the seedlings are growing like crazy.
We have now three vegetable beds going which is super exciting. Garlic, onion and parsley are the only things above the ground so far.
I am waiting for rhubarb plants to be delivered, I love rhubarb and cannot wait for the crops.
We are still deciding on the trees but my shortlist includes morello cherry, peach and hazelnut.
I am also planning to get more peonies for the back garden and some climbing roses. And some edible flowers like pansies or nasturtium so I can make this salad without breaking the bank. This will be a star of every garden party.
A lot of work ahead of us but what a joy!
