Small Garden Story

Over some 15 + years, I have been photographing the evolution of my small (85 x 15 foot) garden and it seems a waste not to put these records into some sort of context. Beginning here in April 2010 this Blog is intended to both act as a diary and to share past and present successes (and some failures), pleasures and disappointments with fellow garden-lovers. In due course, I intend to fill in some of the background and early days but that will have to wait until the winter months!

Delightful miniature lilac

This year the lilacs seems to have been particularly spectacular. Maybe because we've had more time to appreciate them. The little Syringa palibiniana I have had growing in a pot for well over 20 years has excelled its self. If you have a small garden or little space for the standard varieties (which can take over) I strongly recommend this gem. It needs little attention, has seldom been re-potted and seems happy with just a little top dressing and feeding. It smells divine!
