Alpine Loveliness

The Alpine region is renowned for its prettiness as well as its skiing. I have brought a little bit of the Alps to my own garden. Read on to see whether it involves slaloms and ski lifts...

Me and my lovely collection of alpines in troughs, pots and even boots!

Feathered friends

Birds are very pretty, they sound nice and they help us gardeners control pests and weeds. Did you know that more than 140 different types have been spotted in our gardens during surveys like the Big Garden Birdwatch and that 30 different types are found very often?

Colourful birds like these could make a nest in your house

At this time of year the birds are very busy singing and making nests so it's a great time to help them out. I've got some wise words to help you do that and a fun craft project for you to make your own colourful birds.

Do You Know Your Onions?

I love onions, I especially love them in my Mummy's stovies.
We always grow loads of them in our garden and now is the perfect time for planting them. So rather than feeling all smug I thought I'd help you grow loads too.

Look how teeny tiny this shallot is!

National Gardening Week 2015 is almost here

Every year the Royal Horticultural Society runs National Gardening week. It's a celebration of all things gardening.  This year it will be taking place from 13th until 19th April.  And for the first time ever there is a National Open Gardens Day when many gardens that we can't normally normally get to peek inside will open for free.

I'm watering my tomtato but it's the flower on my head that growing!

I've had a look to see what is on all around Scotland and I have some super ideas to get you all excited about gardening.
