Every time you go away

Such abundance in a garden behind a semi-detached ex-council house

Such abundance in a garden behind a semi-detached ex-council house

On Saturday I took the participants on my course to visit Wade Muggleton’s wonderful garden at Station Road. I’ve blogged about it before and don’t wish to repeat myself, but do check out my earlier post if you haven’t already read it.

Wade very kindly offered everyone plants to take home, saying that whenever you visit a garden, you should always take some of it home with you (he was quoting someone, but I can’t remember who). We departed with a variety of goodies: an apple tree, horse radish, rubber plants and (my favourite) alpine strawberries. So, if you have a garden, next time someone visits, why not send them off with a cutting or a plant… or even some courgettes!

  4. We always used to send visitors home with the produce of our garden, whether produce, or plants – and will again once the raised beds are made – but it’s true, there’s always something special about adding something to your garden from somebody else’s, as it gives more life, and love, to it šŸ™‚

    I also look forward to growing beans again – we used to grow enough to give away, and still have enough until next year’s beans started to ripen – like yarn, you can never have enough beans! Lol šŸ™‚

  6. Anyone in the vicinity of Serendipity Farm I have TONNES of potted plants to give away right now! Lots of rare and unusual pine trees, lovely things, maples etc. collected and grown from seed but when we moved our whole ethos changed and unless it can survive our harsh conditions on it’s own and brings some form of dual purpose to Serendipity Farm it can’t stay…
