Welcome to Country Garden UK where I share some ideas about growing flowers and foliage for wildlife, fun or profit.

I’m Gillian and I’m the blog author and photographer.
My own garden in North West England is a happy and relaxed place where there is always something new to see.


For as long as I can remember I’ve been a gardener.
This is our third country garden. I love everything about gardening.

I love raising plants from seeds and cuttings.
I love growing the most beautiful flowers and foliage for cutting.
I love visiting gardens, shows and plant fairs to see what’s new.
I love the way the garden evolves, changing through the seasons.


Perhaps most important of all …
I love to see the wild creatures that visit out garden so I always plant with wildlife in mind.

Love GillianThere are so many ways that growing beautiful flowers and luscious foliage can enhance your garden, your lifestyle and your happiness. 

This a diary of life in an English Country Garden.
I hope you find some inspiration here.    You are most welcome.
