Urban Revival Blogger Challenge, The Garden Revealed
You may remember that back in March I accepted a blogger challenge from online garden retailer Plant Me Now to create a beautiful outside oasis from a small unloved urban space. You can see the before pictures here.
Not the most inspiring space you will agree but I was eager to see if I could, for once, get things to grow and flourish.
So, I have been nurturing the chosen plants since April and it has been surprisingly pain-free and rewarding. I chose some modern metal trellis for the climbing plants, some colourful pots, a small balcony table and rescued the chairs from the back of the garage. Along with a few bits that are now hanging on the wall.
It’s turned out even better than I dreamed. I now have a sunny spot to sit amongst lush foliage and a bounty of white blooms. The climbers are off and hopefully by next year they will be covering much of that expansive brick wall. I actually got some jasmine too in the end and it smells divine.
The next step is to plant some spring bulbs and winter bedding plants in September to keep the garden going all year round.
