My house is a "typical" English suburban property. It has a small garden -- probably intended only for ornamental purposes. Regrettably, many people do not enjoy gardening, and having a small garden is attractive to such people since it involves less maintenance (what a strange view!) 

Well I should imagine we are all getting busy with our gardens weather permitting, and sorting our seeds out. I indeed did buy some new seeds today from Lidls at 29c a packet you just cannot go wrong at that price as they always seem to germinate, but they only have a limited selection. 

The Green Backyard is a community growing project in central Peterborough run entirely by volunteers. From this urban base we are working to transform a once-derelict former allotment site into a beautiful and productive green space. We try to promote sustainable lifestyles and raise awareness of environmental issues through practical demonstration and community involvement. With regular workdays, events and activities we aim to bring people and communities across Peterborough together to be a bit greener, healthier and happier. 

WELCOME to the website of the Old Orchard, the garden surrounding the Old Manse, Cromarty in Ross-shire, Scotland. 

The 17th-century house and 3m-high red sandstone wall surrounding the garden are both A-listed. Their history reflects the changing fortunes of Cromartys prosperity, decline and revival. 

Alternative Eden follows the story of our garden, as we create a taste of the tropics in the UK. Our Philosophy is to create an exotic effect using mostly hardy plants with some more tender accent plants in pots. 

For the past four years I have written a weekly gardening column in the Scunthorpe Telegraph. I kept it fresh and up to date. I also include the projects I work on, schools & more. 

Welcome to the Growing Schools website which has been designed to support teachers and practitioners in using the "outdoor classroom" as a resource across the curriculum for pupils of all ages.
