13 Glorious Gardening Blogs (we’re one of them!)

img_2890We were delighted to hear that A Pentland Garden Diary has been listed as a ‘glorious gardening blog’ by the lovely people at Waltons Sheds.

Not only that, they kindly sent me this mug – if every there was one with my name on, then this is it – thank you!

Here’s their round-up of gardening blogs – why don’t you go check them out.

In other news, it’s feeling decidedly Spring-like today despite the weekend of blizzards and the biting Easterly wind – there’ something smelling amazing in the garden but I have no idea what it is (yet!).

Relisted as a Top 10 UK Gardening Blog

I was thrilled to receive an email yesterday telling us that A Pentland Garden has been relisted in Vuelio’s Top 10 UK Gardening Blogs this year (it’s even snuck up a couple of places!)


I’ve had a wonderful time browsing the others from this list, whether they be galloping, thirsty, patient, frustrated or cynical, they all have great sites and I’ve subscribed to them all!

  1. The Patient Gardener
  2. The Frustrated Gardener
  3. the blackberry garden
  4. Real Men Sow (they deserve a prize for the name alone!)
  5. A Pentland Garden
  6. The Cynical Gardener
  7. The Middle-sized garden
  8. The Galloping Gardener
  9. Two Thirsty Gardeners
  10. Veg Plotting

Here’s the 2015 list in case you were interested, a number of familiar names but a few completely new ones too!

Top UK Gardening Blogs 2016

It was really lovely to receive an email this week telling us that our Pentland Garden Diary has been listed in magazine.co.uk’s Top UK Gardening Bloggers List for 2016. Amazing to see our humble journal being amongst some of the country’s gardening elite.

On top of last year’s listing in Vuelio’s Top 10 UK Gardening Blogs it’s really quite astonishing. A big thank you to anyone who’s ever stopped by and hopefully you’ll continue to enjoy our, more grubby than green, fingered journey.
