How Does Your Garden Grow

Been a busy week in the garden with lots of planting, sowing and other garden planty type things going on.

I thinned out the bulbs and some plants which were just too bunched together.

Seems I’m growing snails as well as plants!

We got some pots and started potting some colourful plants for Summer.

Seems crazy hyper children running around like loons and delicate flowers don’t mix very well… I had to rescue these stems after the kids snapped them off, ahh well they look pretty indoors!

The boys got into the whole gardening malarkey using their rather adorable gardening tools we bought from Morrisons.

Ahren…digging in the compost whilst rocking the Spiderman onesie, too darn cool!

We did a little sowing of wildflower seeds which will hopefully be attracting some butterflies and bees.

Got the saw out and upcycled this ladder in to a rather lovely pot display, I love this and can’t wait to see it once the flowers bloom.

Here’s a few of the bloomy blooms we’ve got at the moment, and a lady bug, cause every garden needs a lady bug!

  1. Love all your photos! Especially love the wellies as pots! #HDYGG

  2. You have such a pretty garden. Good to see you have a little helper too

  3. Love that ladder idea! It already looks goo but when they are in full bloom it's going to look awesome-sauce! I've got a fab book that came through the post randomly recently called Garden LAB for kids - full of ideas for fun way and thins to do with kids in the garden - I must blog a couple of ideas form the book as its a good book :) So good to see little ones outdoors being part of it all - I'm really inspired to do more with mine at the moment, really getting my gardening pants on at the moment! Thanks for joining in again - loving the photos (and the super cute gardening set!)

  4. Ha. You may have solved my problem. We are planting up old welly boots, but newest pup likes to redistribute everything. Maybe I need to hide them at the top of a ladder! Yours looks very promising. Beautiful blooms. #HDYGG
