Hello Sunshine ! Springtime gardening at home and in the Blue Peter Garden. Oh yeah and I’m off to the #RHSChelsea Flower Show !

Partying like a Pro, as I win a ‘Local Hero Award’

Just a quick post about some fantastic news I got this week – I won the Social Farms & Gardens Young Hero Award 🙂 and what was great was that the ceremony was in my home town of Manchester at Hulme Community Garden Centre.

Then at weekend straight after school we travelled to Scotland for a party and had the most amazing wildlife adventure; my feet haven’t touched the ground! Continue reading

Spring is nature’s way of saying, ‘Let’s Party’ (by Robin Williams)

It’s a while since I wrote my last blog, as I’ve been too busy enjoying myself!

The weather has certainly improved since I last wrote a post; finally, we’ve been able to get in the garden and crack on with some clearing up and make a start on the growing season.

Go on, get out and #GrowThisSpring

This morning I felt a bit down about something, I sat watching TV and my Mum said “you need to ‘practice what you preach’, you need to go outside into the garden“. I didn’t particularly want to, to be honest as I just felt a bit empty inside, but I did go out in to the garden, with a cup of tea in my hand and I went up into my treehouse (more like, 2 planks of wood stuck in the tree, with a ladder going up!).

I went up there and just started doing stuff like building things and I stayed up there for 5 hours in the end! It’s true what they say, time flies when you’re having fun. I really enjoyed it, every worry disappeared out of my head and later with a hot chocolate, I sat there listening and watching the birds and it really cheered me up.

Marching on to spring!

I think I was a little hasty with my last post about inspiring people to start spring gardening, as ‘The Beast From The East’ blasted through the country and covered everything in snow; it was like, “STOP THE PRESS, SPRING IS CANCELLED!!”. It’s a lesson learnt to not plant anything too early!

It’s been a whole lot milder since, so let’s hope we’ve seen the last of the snow and with the return of Gardeners’ World, surely it means we are ‘marching on to spring’?!? Continue reading

Sending you some spring gardening inspiration!!

If like me, you’ve sniffed spring in the air this week and you fancy having a go at growing more of your own fruit and veg, then I hope this week’s blog will inspire you to give it a go.

I wrote this with (a lot of) help from Sarah, my (very) old gardening teacher, based on what we used to grow in our Primary School Garden; hope it inspires you to give it a ‘grow’!
