A Beginners Guide To Growing In A Greenhouse

*Collaborative Post

In the height of summer when the sun is shining, it’s easy to grow stuff in the garden. Any spare piece of grass can be planted on and you’ll have some great vegetables in no time. But when the cold weather starts to set in, it’s near impossible to keep stuff alive out there. There are winter vegetables that will grow, of course, but you’re limited in what you can grow in the cold. However, that doesn’t mean you can’t make good use of your garden during the winter. If you want to carry on growing warm-weather vegetables all year round, you need to get yourself a greenhouse. But don’t make the mistake of thinking that you can just put the greenhouse up and stick some vegetables in the ground and leave them to grow, there’s a little more to it than that. If you’re thinking about getting a greenhouse in the garden, read this beginner’s guide to get you started. Continue reading “A Beginners Guide To Growing In A Greenhouse”

Making the Most of Your Small Garden

Most new houses now come with very small gardens and ours is no exception. It was the compromise we made to have a house we wanted in the right location but it is still something I struggle with even 6 years on. When I sit and watch gardening programmes I dream of having the space to be able to recreate some of their looks, to be able to have a pond or water feature and the land to have a separate play area away from all my plants. One day, when I win the lottery eh! So, for now, I have had to learn how to make the most of our small garden all whilst keeping it functional for all of us as a family.  Continue reading “Making the Most of Your Small Garden”
