 I thought i would share with you all my first ever 'yarden' from 4 years ago. All of the plants were grown from seed with no knowledge of anything. It snowballed from there and now it's my biggest passion (obsession!) in life and has helped immensely with my mental health and wellbeing. 

Just glad i have caught the bug young and have many many years of gardening ahead of me!

Well done, it look beautiful!

It looked lovely and I think you have some artistic talent   the draping of the cloth on the table looks really great. How does it look now? I'd love to see more pics.

That's very pretty, well done.  I love the coloured tin pots to the left of the picture, they are lovely.

Like KEF, I would love to see more pictures 

Have you seen the shabby chic thread (not implying it's shabby!), I say that because we like watering cans, jugs, quirky plant pots etc on there for planting things in

Thats really lovely.

Kef, thats a back of a chair!

Lyn, green cloth draped on the table, I hope it is or my new specs need taking back

Well done Karmag. Those sterile little spaces we sometimes have can be transformed with a bit of thought and some tlc. You'll get birds, bees and other insects coming in too which will be wonderful.

I'm glad doing it has helped you too. Gardening's a lifeline for so many people of all ages. I hope the 'bug' stays with you and you continue enjoying it

Hi karmag, its beautiful, love the watering can just seen in the picture. Look forward to seeing more pics.

Well done, it's a marvellous transformation and I'm sure many will get pleasure from seeing it

KARMA G..   It's very pretty. I bet it gives you great pleasure. Can I come and sit with you for a cuppa, that would be nice  ?

Thankyou for your nice comments

The pots on the left were from the poundshop and fell to bits shortly after this photo!

I don't live in the same house anymore i rent and upgraded to an actual garden but not long after we moved in i developed costochondritis so couldn't actually do anything in the garden so at the moment i'm concentrating on the front potted display and surrounding myself with streptocarpus and african violets.

I'm slowly getting there and hope i'll be well enough to enrol at east durham horticultural college.. fingers crossed!

oh and tea would be lovely runnybeak

Lovely 'Yardan' especially like the office type chair, so you can work out there I know nothing about the condition that you have, but I fervently hope you will be well enough soon to make more gardens and post the pics here

29/08/2014 at 21:26

I don't know about either Karma, but hope you are well soon, best wishes

thankyou. it's inflammation of the cartilage in the chest.. mimics the signs of a heart attack which was scary the first time i was in pain! Can't lift pots or anything heavy (not what you expect at the age of 22!) but thankfully i have a strapping man to help me
