As regular readers will know, my OH & I have been spending a lot of time on our garden. Anyone who has ever transformed a garden will know that it is not quick work, especially when winter has dragged its heels and hung around like an uninvited guest to a party! But now that the warmer weather is making a stand & we’ve finally been able to paint the fence without getting frostbite (took almost the whole weekend – Yawn!) we’re ready to start planning the garden. It’s going to take a while & a little bit of cash, but we’ll get there. I’m hopeful that we’ll be able to plant in the Autumn ready for next Spring. Until then, I can plan & dream & visit garden centre aplenty! Or I could just save up my pennies & buy a Hundred Pound Garden, brought to you by the lovely people at Burford Garden Centre.

Garden

The garden plan is very simple:

  1. You choose a garden. It can either be an artists garden, a cut flower garden or a wildlife garden.
  2. Your garden, and all the bits you’ll need, are delivered to your door.
  3. You then prepare the ground
  4. Plant the plants
  5. Water the plants
  6. Watch how your garden grows.

I think this idea is genius! You can buy other bits and pieces as extras, like gardening gloves, twine and watering cans. It’s such a unique idea & great for a wedding, new home or birthday presents. One of the reasons I really like this idea is because it’s quite daunting deciding what to plant and where, because you kind of want to get it right first go, especially if you’ve been waiting for a long time, like we have. What do you think? Would you use the Hundred Pound Garden? If so, which would you choose?

  1. I think that’s a fantastic idea! I love that it comes with detailed plans and instructions, including what to do at the end of the flowering season. I know nothing about gardening, and it seems pretty daunting to start a garden from scratch. This may just be the thing I need – thanks!
