Growing concerns

cake day 010Less than a week until our London show. Yesterday I went to fantastic independent garden centre Growing Concerns in East London to hand out a few flyers. The centre started life as a residents’ gardening club and has been on its current site next to the Grand Union Canal since 2000. According to the member of staff I was chatting to, it is built over electricity lines so technically they could be asked to move everything with ten days’ notice. Eek!

They have a lovely selection of plants and, as well as pressing flyers into people’s hands, I got lots of inspiration for my own garden re-design. I am currently attempting to revamp my back garden having recently bought the bottom half. So far I have had some tree surgeons in and taken down some wibbly wobbly trellis that the former owner put up. It was so squint it made me feel seasick. The next phase involves paving a small area to put an arbour on. This means agonising over slabs. Nothing is ever simple.
