I’ve been going Pinterest crazy recently for all things gardening and one thing that’s been high on my to-do list, especially with our continued Wintery weather, has been to create a potting shed sanctuary.
Our Summerhouse, which also acts as my home office and a general dumping ground for out of season garden furniture and chicken bedding/feed etc. will be the perfect spot, once it’s been cleared out a bit.
I’ve been gathering lots of ‘pinspiration‘ and spotted something at last weekend’s local auction that would make a perfect potting bench – thankfully, we won it and it was delivered today, along with some other bits n pieces.
I couldn’t quite wait for it to be in situ before got ‘potting’ so I planted up a set of vintage scales with some succulents. S didn’t quite ‘get’ my vision with this one so will be interested to see if he likes it.
We also bought a vintage watering can and an old Edwardian foot bath a few weeks back that are also waiting on some potting action.
In other news, the spring onion ends that I put in some water at the weekend, have indeed started sprouting (yes, another idea from Pinterest), although the celery isn’t looking quite so successful just yet.
The post was also a joy – I received a new book on growing and preserving fruit to review, a packet of wildflower seeds from this year’s Grow Wild campaign and a sample of Baby Bio outdoor. Along with the seeds from a friend, I have a lot to be playing around with.
