I have started this blog to share information on the many projects we have finished or are working on in our beautiful garden in Mid Wales on the banks of the River Severn. We have four acres in total being divided between garden, vegetable plot, orchard and new woodland and wildflower meadow. When we moved into the property the garden was non existent with two fields knee high in thistle and brambles and access to the river covered in brambles and weed.
Over the last 3 and a half years we have struggled, with the elements and the ever increasing onslaught of Brambles to get a lovely haven of tranquility. It rewards us daily with its beauty and fresh organic fruit and vegetables.
Along the way we have had help from friends and volunteers. There remains much to do battle with but we are gradually winning the war. We hope to be able to open the garden to the public for charity soon so others can enjoy our labour of love.
I hope to offer tips and guides on the blog as well as seasonal reciepes to projects with updates on their pros and cons.
