I love gardening but it was only when we moved to Peterborough that we finally had a proper garden to plant things in. I have tried in the last few years to keep on top of it but that is not always easy; especially now that we have two little ones running about the place. It's made even more difficult by me having little to no idea about when to plant bulbs and seeds to get the perfect coverage all year around, but I have been determined to try, especially since Squidgy started taking an interest!
My grandmother was an extraordinary gardener, she always had the most beautiful flowers from potted plants to hanging baskets and lines of flower beds all perfectly landscaped. She would spend hours tending to it, and I loved visiting her and spending time with my family outside amongst the colours.
On top of this, my father in law won awards for his garden, and made displays at the Chelsea Flower show. I have a lot to live up to from both sides of the family, and maybe now that I know a bit more about what and when to plant throughout the year I will be able to better plan my time and have a garden at least a little better than it currently is!
