Garden: What is Happening in My Garden


Welcome to my garden tour in February! As a gardener, this is an exciting time of the year as things start to happen in the garden. In this blog, I will take you on a tour of my garden and show you what I’m currently doing.

While my garden may not have undergone drastic changes, there’s plenty of work happening behind the scenes to maintain and enhance its beauty.

The Front Garden

Let’s start our tour in the front garden. At this time of year, the front garden may still seem bare, but it has its own charm. The trees are yet to get their leaves, and the Cornus with its red bare stems looks stunning.

I have perennials that need to be cut back, but I left them through the winter to support wildlife and encourage biodiversity. The front garden may not have much to showcase, but it provides a peaceful and serene space.

The Back Garden

Now, let’s move to the back garden. Similar to the front garden, the majority of the back garden has low maintenance planting, such as trees and grass. However, underneath the trees, there is a beautiful display of snowdrops and daffodils.

The pond is also a highlight, although it needs some weeding. The fruit trees, mainly cooking apple trees, require a winter prune, which I haven’t done yet. But underneath the apple trees, there’s a riot of spring blossom just waiting to burst into color in the coming months.

The Guild Garden and Greenhouse

The real work is happening in what I call the “guild garden” and the greenhouse. In the guild garden, I have planted dwarf fruit trees along the sides, adding structure and beauty to the garden. I’ve also been busy weeding and preparing the beds for planting.

My focus is on incorporating perennials for their low maintenance nature and beautiful blooms year after year. The table in the garden showcases a variety of spring bulbs, including species tulips, crocuses, and snowdrops. These tiny pots of spring bulbs add a special touch to the garden and allow me to appreciate them up close.

Inside the greenhouse, I have been busy growing broadbeans, peas, onions, shallots, and baby leeks. The greenhouse provides the perfect environment for these plants to thrive before being planted outside. I’ve also started growing brassicas and salad leaves. Additionally, I have a collection of aliums, which will be planted out into the guild garden. These beautiful flowers not only add visual appeal but also act as a natural repellent for pests.

Looking Forward to Spring

As I wrap up this garden tour, I can feel the excitement of spring in the air. Although there may still be some wintry days ahead, the garden is starting to burst back to life. The fennel, comfrey, lupins, and achilleas are sprouting up, signaling the arrival of spring. It’s a magical time in the garden, and I can’t wait to get stuck in and continue nurturing its growth.


Thank you for joining me on this garden tour in February. Despite the lack of dramatic changes, my garden is a labor of love. I’m dedicated to maintaining its beauty and creating a space that not only pleases the eye but also supports wildlife and biodiversity.

I hope you enjoyed this glimpse into my garden and the work I’ve been doing. If you have any thoughts or comments, please share them below. Until next time, happy gardening!
