How does your garden grow?

I'm on a voyage of discovery in my first garden.
It's mostly about the veggies at the moment but I'm also discovering lots about flowers and other plants - quite often the hard way and always on a very tight budget.
But this blog is not just about my garden, it's about all the things I see and discover in Sussex and beyond and I would love to hear from you too.

Free plant labels

A cheap and easy way to label plants and seedlings is by re-using plastic food containers like margerine tubs or milk bottles.
Just wash out the container, cut the flat sides into strips and trim the ends into points so they poke easily into the soil.
Hey-presto! Now that's what I call recycling.


  1. Hello, I'm popping in from Blotanical where you submitted your blog. I'm looking through your posts and checking your feed before approval. Everything looks great. I'm originally from England so really enjoy visiting the British blogs.

  2. This post is so creative I linked to it in today's post.

  3. I have done this too, with a one litre yoghurt container so I have lots of space to write ;~) Diana of EE
