Front Garden April 2010 2 Medium

A Snippet of My Front Garden

I’m really happy with how this part of my front garden is coming together.  The other areas are still filling in for the season but I’m happy with the mix of colour and textures here.  The plants that work best for me?  Mini, dwarf, teeny – call it what you want – the small cultivars  are most successful in a tiny urban garden if you want to have lots and lots and lots of plants all crammed in together.

    Healthy eating has really been good for my family. It’s very satisfying to grow and then prepare your own food.
