Can your funds run to pots or containers to put on the huge patio which you can sow flowers, veg and/or herbs into? Then you'll have some produce and nature while you are planning what to do next and waiting for the lawn to establish.

Rachel de Thame trained with the Royal Ballet but had to give up when she was 19 after she had had glandular fever. She did some modelling. But then decided to do a course in Horticulture.

I'm enjoying this series so far. Monty is getting his hands dirty too, and had a mouthful of earth from the green roof in that little yard!
