A very warm welcome to you.
Country Garden UK is for people who love English Country Gardens and want to know more about creating them and the best plants to choose.
People I meet often ask me about my garden. I try to explain what it’s like and over the years I have found that photos are an effective way of showing seasonal changes and just how quickly gardens can grow and develop. Most of the photos are taken here in my garden in Lancashire, North West England. I love to visit other gardens for inspiration and ideas. I’ll include photos of them and links to their websites whenever possible. I hope they help you too.
Everyone deserves a beautiful garden.
Do you dream of a beautiful garden in the country? There are some people who will tell you that gardening is a complicated business. They say that you need to know about the science of the soil and plants to be successful. This is simply not true. Seeds and plants want to grow. It’s in their nature to thrive and reproduce. All you need to do is choose plants that suit the conditions in your garden and they will grow well. It’s not a struggle to persuade them to grow. It’s easy.
If you are a complete beginner then I hope you feel inspired and encouraged to have a go yourself. You don’t need any special skills or talent to grow lovely plants and you may be thrilled by the speed your new garden develops and starts to attract wildlife.You may already be an experienced gardener with a mature garden. Perhaps you’d like to make some changes or you’d simply like to see what other people are doing with their gardens.
Whatever your experience, I hope you find something here to surprise and delight you.
Please let me know what you think about my garden, the plants I write about and the gardens I visit. I appreciate your thoughts and comments and I will try to answer your questions.
