After another glorious bank holiday, it is time to get your garden ready for summer, with the official first day of the season coming later this month.
Thanks to the wonderful Chelsea Flower Show’s conclusion last week, there is a great variety of inspiration to be taken. There were some particularly special and new varieties of roses displayed by my friends at Harkness Roses. One particularly worthy of note is ‘The Menopause Charity‘ rose, a compact and bushy Floribunda. The sales from this rose will contribute towards raising awareness of the symptoms of menopause, and go towards funds for the charity also. Beautiful, and raising money for a good cause.
On Sunday the 11th of June, I’ll be back in the gardening heart of Cheshire for a brand new event, helping you to Grow Your Own at home. Including a fun activity to entertain the kids, everyone can get involved in the beauty of producing food in your garden. Make sure to book so you don’t miss out!
If you are in the Essex area on the evening of the 21st of June, I’m hosting a gardening masterclass at Perrywoods Garden Centre in Tiptree. Not only will you learn some of my best gardening suggestions, but for a small charity donation, you could be one of 50 to receive a signed copy of my book, ‘My Houseplant Saved My Life’. Make sure you don’t miss out, and book your place now.
As we prepare for countless garden parties and opportunities to enjoy our outdoor spaces, get the best out of your garden this June by taking some inspiration from my website and YouTube channel.
