Garden Grow

June 5, 2017

Happy World Environment Day!

This weekend we stopped by the Garden Centre after arriving back from Mexico. If you follow my blog then you’ll know I have been reading Lab Girl. It’s such a wonderful book and it’s teaching me so much about plants. I have always loved the idea of growing my own garden but feel like I’m bad at it. This month I am going to try and start successfully growing herbs! I think they’re pretty useful to have and it’s a good start for me!

Herbs I Purchases:


(must be grown separately)

I had to get this Lavender plant. Both my Nan and Mum have them in their garden and I used to pick the flowers and make dried lavender bags for my chest of draws/ wardrobe. There are so many things you can do with Lavender it’s handy to have! Once it gets bigger I can start making a few things from it.

I know I said I was going to wait to start growing vegetables but I saw these tomatoes on the way out and thought I would give it a go. They are meant to be one of the more easier vegetables to grow along with the following:

Green Beans
Lettuce and Salad Greens

And finally at home on the Patio planting them into pots!

I am going to make some better DIY planter labels on the weekend so I’ll do another post and let you know how they’re going!

I hope this post inspires you to start a little garden of your own, even if it’s just herbs and a lavender plant! Also, if you’re not already into the refuse, reduce, reuse, recycle, habit, choose today to make it a part of your life!
