Building a large garden on a budget

Welcome !! Friday 7 July 2017

This is mostly a diary of the development of our garden, and late on in the year I update all the articles on the site to show the changes we have made during the year (and as such “normal” Blog entries are posted sporadically).

If you are a returning visitor you might like to read the Autumn 2015 Tour – this will take you on a tour around all the articles that were changed at the end of 2015

If you are a new visitor, visiting for the first time, you might like to start with the About page

If you are looking for something specific please try the Blog Index.

I record pictures that interest me on Pinterest kGardenPins on Pinterest – I don’t Pin everything I see! just ones of interest.

If you would like to receive notifications when I add an update to my blog, which is usually no more than a couple of times a month, please use the “Follow” button in the menu on right hand pane.

    Hi Kristen,
    Good to see you again and I have only just started looking through your site. You are doing a fantastic job – as usual – and it makes me feel a bit tired just seeing all the hard work you put in.
    It takes me all my spare time (not a lot of it) just getting my garden ready for open day and maintaining it.
    Best wishes

      Thanks Shiney. The Butternut Squash seed you gave me was amazing, and this year’s crop looks good to. I have a few seeds left for next year, and I promise I will have a go at keeping some seed myself! – otherwise I may have to ask for some more.

      I also grew Cobnut from Suttons this year. They were much earlier, but very small, all sorts of different shapes and sizes (F1? my foot …)

      Good gardening!

        I was looking at the Tarpaflex you have installed over your allotment. I believe this has rows of eyelets up the middle. Did you have to fill all these holes before using the netting?

      • kgarden Says:

        I don’t, and have only ever had a couple of butterflies inside the netting in all the years I have been using Debris Netting. But I do know of people who go to the trouble of stitching the eyelets up.

        Hi again

        I have now installed Tarpaflex netting. The 3m width came with 2 rows of eyelets up the middle which I have covered with tape – also supplied by Tarpaflex.
