Another day of painting, upcycling and finding a very overgrown border.

🎄 🎅🏼Christmas Wreath 2️⃣0️⃣2️⃣0️⃣🎅🏼 I made 20 bespoke wreaths last year in aid of @streetvetuk_ This year, I’ve scaled it back and I’m making 4 with all proceeds going to @stmungos a brilliant homeless charity that will help homeless people with dogs (and other pets). Thinking of running a workshop next year with all proceeds going to charity.

🌞 Sun Patio 🌞 Swipe ➡️ for Before 📸 Today’s project in a client’s garden. The wood cladding was in serious need of TLC so has been painted in @cuprinolsverige ‘Silver Birch’ to start tying the garden areas together. Patio semi weeded and swept. There was rotted out trellis in front of the water butts which has now been removed. Plants cut back and the never ending supply of autumn leaves removed 🍂 This garden is so big, it’s a real project, but, we’re getting there. Slowly, but surely 🙌🏼 #gardener #ladygardener #femalegardener #gardenoverhaul #massiveproject #patiogarden #countrygarden #cuprinolgardenshades #cuprinolsilverbirch #greygardensstyle2020 #taunton #bridgwater #somerset #bridgwaterbusiness #femaletrades #nortonfitzwarren #beforeandafter #ongoingproject

•Christmas Roses• If you are looking for some great hardy perennials that provide winter colour to your garden, look no further than the trusty Hellebore or ‘Christmas Rose’. It has a long flowering season, beautiful foliage and lots of colours to choose from; green, white, yellow, red, black, and many variations of pink and purple. Double blooms or single, spotted or freckle-free. You can pick up small plants for £3.00 in @morrisons at the moment. Plant in borders or pots. ⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ #winterblooms #plantsmakepeoplehappy #plantgoals #gardenblooms #inmygardentoday #musthave #sunnyday #saturdayspecials #gardendiary #gardentherapy #gardenflowers #bloomsyourheart #plantsmakepeoplehappy😊🌱🌷 #flowerpower #flowersinmygarden #colorful #hellebores #christmas #christmasroses #gardeningtips

• Pesky Polystyrene • Polystyrene is the Donald Trump of plastics, in other words, it’s the worst! You can’t recycle it. 😡 So to save it from landfill, keep it to break up in the bottom of your garden pots instead of old crocks and rocks to improve the drainage and help your plants flourish 🌷 ⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ #nationalrecyclingweek #terracycleanz #reuse #noplanetb #zerowaste #reduce #plasticfree #savetheplanet #sustainableliving #zerowasteliving #recycled #recycleeverything #sustainabilitytips #reducewaste #recycle #recycling #recyclemore #recycleright #recyclingbin #circulareconomy #environmentallyconscious #terracycle #zerowastelife #reducereuserecycle #gogreen #ecofriendly #lesswaste #sustainability #recyclingideas

🌿Herb Gardens🌿 One of my client’s had a Belfast sink loitering in the undergrowth, so I’ve moved it into situ on some bricks. The client mentioned she would like a little herb garden, incorporating lemon Balm, strawberry and apple mints. I’ve suggested Rosemary & Chives too; brilliant for roast dinners and summer salads respectively. The plan is to plant the rosemary and mints in individual planters as they are a bit thuggish and I don’t want them to swamp the other herbs. In the Belfast sink I’ll plant the lemon balm, chives and some lavender (also great for baking). Finished off and labelled with these beautiful slate markers. Do you have a herb garden or planter? Tell me your go to herbs below ⬇️ ⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ #mygarden #diary #ayearinflowers #roses #growyourownflowers #flowergarden #gardening #englishgarden #цветы #flowers #perrenialgarden #fleurs #dahlia #cuttinggarden #flowerphotography #мои #cutflowergarden #instaflowers #peonies #botanical #cutflowers #gardenlove #lovegardening #flowersofinstagram #flowersmakemehappy #pink #gardenersworld #florist #roses #gardentherapy

🌸 Patio + Pretty Pots 🌸 I was as a new client’s house today. A young couple who have a busy life with a young daughter and online business. The garden has got a little unruly and they don’t have the time to tend to it and enjoy it. It’s a mammoth task and a work in progress which I will share over the course of taming it. I’ve weeded and swept the patio, as well had upcycled and planted existing pots that the client had. The client’s selected @cuprinoluk Garden Shades in ‘Silver Birch’ which is going to be key in tying the different zones of the garden together 🎨 ⁣I’ve planted Euonymus, Variegated Hebe and a Penstemon to provide shape, height and foliage which will eventually hide the cat flap 🙈 .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ #gardeninspo #gardendecor #patiostyle #gardendesign #gardening #patioideas #patioliving #patiodecor #landscaping #gardeninspiration #landscapedesigner #garden #newgarden #gardenlife #gardendesigner #gardengoals #patiofacelift #beforeandafter #patio #outdoorspace #exteriordesign #gardentransformed #gardentransform #gardendesigns #patiodesign #patiolife #gardentransformation #bridgwater #taunton

Confirmed a new project today which I’m so excited about! 👩🏻‍🌾 First up is a some much needed painting of the pergola, benches & plant pots so that the owners view of the garden looks much more appealing for Christmas🎄 You’ll never find me suggesting a brown or (heaven forbid) red cedar fence paint 🤢 Cuprinol Garden Shades Paint comes in an array colours to protect your fencing, providing a great back drop for your flowers and blooms to pop against! 💥 My clients have decided on ‘Silver Birch’, so stay tuned for the transformation updates 🤗 ⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ #garden #gardenlighting #patio #interiorandgarden #mygarden #gardenmakeover #outdoorliving #landscaping #homeandgarden #beforeandafter #gardendesigner #gardendesign #landscapingdesign #home #gardening #gardengoals #gardenideas #gardeninspiration #gardenstyle #gardeninspo #designandbuild #mygardenthismonth #instagarden #interiorandliving #gardenlife

I LOVE English Roses incorporated into garden planting. I hope you are all enjoying the last blooms of your roses in the garden! This 'Chandos Beauty' is a bushy, repeat flowering, hybrid tea rose that blooms from summer until autumn and produces highly scented, champagne to pale apricot coloured flowers. VERY easy to grow 🙌🏼 ⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ #rose #rosa #rosegarden #rosestagram #rosephotography #apricotroses #flowers #flowergarden #flowerstagram #flowerphotography #instapic #instarose #chandosbeauty

Butterflies, Bees & Erysimum Bicolor🦋 ‘Bowles’s Mauve’ I ADORE these perennial wallflowers; woody-stemmed, bearing masses of mauve flowers on tall spires, for months on end. They are attractive to wildlife, low maintenance and thrive is most soil types.

Back at client’s garden today 👩🏻‍🌾 Edges tidied up, weeded, dug over and pruning done where required. I have made some recommendations for this area as follows: • Edging Stones like in other border. • Infill planting with low maintenance, high impact perennial plants. • Spring bulbs to be planted next month. • Manure to be spread across border to improve soil quality for next year’s spring/summer season. I’d quite like to give the tree support and bird table a lick of paint to protect from the winter elements. ❄️ ⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ #plants #growsomethinggreen #instantscenery #gardendesign #isloveplants #somersetgardens #landscapers #gardenmaintenance #morethanjustgardeners #gardeners #autumngardening #wetgardeners #planttrees #field #shrubs #garden #bridgwaterbusiness #perrygreen #wembdon #bridgwater

Sedums in the sunshine ☀️ Sedum is a perennial plant with thick, succulent leaves, fleshy stems, and clusters of star-shaped flowers. Before they bloom, they can look a bit vegetable like, but gorgeous in borders to provide colour and texture. Good draining soil is key for a sedum’s success in your garden. Do you have a Bee Bath in your garden? 🐝 A bee bath is a simple bee water feeder that is easy to make and care for in your home garden, and it's a nice touch to set out for your pollinating guests. After all, without those busy workers in the garden, you wouldn't have as many beautiful blooms throughout the year. How you can make your own bee bath: 🐝 Select a spot in your garden that's shady and protected. 🐝 Turn a plant pot upside down and use it as the base of your bath. Place a shallow dish on top of the upturned plant pot or find one that will fit snuggly in the top of a plant pot like this. 🐝 Add your marbles or stones to the base of the dish so that the bees can steady themselves whilst drinking. 🐝 Fill with fresh water. Great project for kids to get involved in 👩🏻‍🌾 ⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ #beesofinstagram #nature #garden #honeybee #beekeeping #protecttheplanet #bee #beekeepinglife #pollinators #honeybees #bees #beekeepingsuit #beekeeper #flower #beekeepingaustralia #beehives #bees🐝 #bumblebees #photography #apiculture #flowers #urbanbeekeeping #flowersofinstagram #flowerphotography #naturalbeekeeping #savethebees #flowerstagram #naturephotography #backyardbeekeeping #beekeepersnaturals

September is the perfect time to start prepping your beds & borders for winter. 🌨 This means weeding, digging the soil over, cutting back plants that have ‘gone over’ and having a general tidy up. 🧹 October is the perfect time to plant your spring bulbs, and then pop mulch and/or horse manure over your beds to improve the quality of your soil and provide winter protection for your plants ❄️ Swipe ➡️ for before 🙌🏼 ⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ #gardengreatorsmall #mygardenthismonth #garden #gardenlove #courtyard #gardening #mygarden #geranium #upcycle #garden #gardenphotography #plantguy #mycosyhome #courtyardgarden #mygardentoday #gardenlife #gardensofinstagram #instagarden #instagardeners #potspotspots #gardensoftheworld #petals #summervibes #plantsmakepeoplehappy #smallgardenideas #gardenersworld #cannington #quantocks #bridgwater

Climbers 🧗‍♂️ If you are looking for fast growing climbing plants that provide great foliage and the most amazing blooms, look no further than the ‘Passion Flower’. You can pick them up really easily, even in the supermarket. They look amazing growing up trellis and walls, but for small gardens you could plant in a pot with a large obelisk to keep them under control. They are low cost, low maintenance (fine with a good ‘Chelsea Chop’) but BIG impact plants that always get admired for their tropical flowers and long flowering period through the summer months. ⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ #instagood #art #beautiful #flowers #photooftheday #sky #nature #climb #houseplants #summer #photography #gardening #plantsmakepeoplehappy #naturephotography #landscape #garden #adventure #green #naturelovers #plantsofinstagram #beauty #love #cannington #bridgwater #quantocks

🌺 Hibiscus Syriacus 🌺 I fell I love with Hibiscus plants whilst in Cape Town, so wanted to incorporate some into my courtyard garden here in Somerset. Hibiscus are very showy plants, producing large trumpet-like flowers in a wide range of colours. The hardy, outdoor varieties are easy to look after and, providing they get plenty of light, will produce fabulous floral displays in the later summer months. I have just deadheaded mine, making way for more blooms. The amount of bees enjoying them is reason enough to incorporate them into your own garden, but they also provide colour, shape & height 🐝 #gardener #gardening #selftaught #hibiscus #englishgarden #somerset #somersetlife #somersetliving #flowersnotfootballpitches #savethebees #feedthebirds #providefornature #cannington #quantocks #bridgwater #somerset
