Last Sunday, my friend Naomi had an impromptu lunch party. It was still going strong at 6.30pm, when her garden was bathed in some lovely dappled shade.
The garden is the perfect illustration of just how many plants you can cram in, and how great a garden can look, if you don’t have a lawn. The front is reserved for veg and some extremely tall sunflowers courtesy of Great Dixter where Naomi sometimes volunteers.
Naomi spreads her knowledge of gardening far and wide – she’s got entire streets in her neighbourhood planting veg in their front gardens and beautifying their tree pits. As a result she’s just found out that she’s been nominated for two community gardening awards.
Be sure to check out her popular and very informative blog.
