Gardening Therapy: Our Garden in May



I bought this little vase set to display some of my favourite bits and bobs from the garden and remind myself to keep getting out there. It is no secret that my love of gardening comes and goes. Although, after finally spending 3 weekends in a row at home, I think I am cracking the garden. My Dad who has always been my guide, is spending more time at his own allotment, which has forced me to take control. I am feeling very grown up, a little achey, and there is definitely a slightly smug feeling about the engrained dirt in my my hands as I sit here typing.

Over the bank holiday we removed some long abandoned old plastic toys from the decking, (bar the football net) and now it makes the perfect place to lounge. My next project is mowing the lawn, but cut me some slack, I have been busy on other projects.



The kids now have an old sandpit each to use as a raised bed for their own gardening therapy times. They’ve planted peas and wild flowers so far in one and dug holes and made mud pies in the other. We made a little mud kitchen corner, with a plank and some old bricks – best thing ever in their book!


I love the garden at this time of year, when we moved in my Dad carefully uncovered what was already planted and added lots of herbs and bee attracting plants. I have gradually succumbed to natural looking, wild flowers and plants, after watching Chelsea Flower Show last night, I have come to the conclusion that’s my favourite style too. I did some weeding last weekend and rescued the chives, sadly the bluebells are dying back.


May is a magical time, the peonies always shoot up, it is is like they know it is my birthday on Friday.


And the jasmine, honeysuckle, rose and clematis over the wall in the yard area start to climb and take it in turns to bloom.


The Lily of the Valley are at their finest this month too, even after a heaving beating from the rain.


After threatening to do this for years, I finally dug a wide border along the hedge, I was fed up of the garden feeling lop sided, and of looking at the concrete slab path. This is a mix of plants I bought at  a wildflower farm and those I rehomed which had seeded themselves and attempted to sprout in the wrong place – buddhlia and fennel are forever doing this. I might regret the buddhlia, knowing how fast it can grow, but right now we need shade. I even used some compost and fertlisier to give them a head start in this neglected strip of land. Gardening therapy levels were high after all the digging was done!

I am sad to see the end of the bluebells and the cowslips, but it is always exciting to see something you wouldn’t expect in a suburban garden, makes me feel like I am in a country wood.


I bought some succulents, and planted them in a wall, just as an experiment. I love how this purple flowering climber has taken root, and I am encouraging it to take over the whole wall.


The kids enjoyed planting some more in old tins, which look a bit bare currently – we want to paint them at some point, to add some colour. Garden projects and ideas are never ending!


My favourite is the fennel – we are always amazed by how fast it grows into a giant plant, up to 2.5m high,  with stunning antenna like fronds. My kids love to eat the aniseed flavoured seeds like sweets. Or the alpine strawberries, which have just spread everywhere now, covering neglected patches of border with a supply of snacks.

  3. 21/05/2015 / 9:35 am

    Over the school holidays we will be weeding the front garden which is in desperate need of it and out the back I’m hoping to get some plants and flowers to brighten it up a bit 🙂

  4. 21/05/2015 / 10:05 am

    Ah your garden is looking lovely – it’s amazing how small burst of consistent work can really start to make a difference. I’m tackling mammoth grass here post-holiday – all that rain has made it grow to epic lengths!

    Thanks for joining in Penny x

  5. 21/05/2015 / 10:27 am

    You have wonderful areas in your garden and great how the kids are using their old sandpits to now grow their own plants.

    I’ve just this afternoon repotted my tomatoes and put them outside (and am keeping my fingers crossed!). Once my patio has been cleaned then I will be sorting out my pot planters, and am going to try some herbs too.

    Love the Lily of the Valley. I’m going to have to work hard to save ours when we finally get the JCB in to landscape the garden after about 20 years of neglect from the previous owners. Can’t wait to be able to potter properly!

    We purchased our first house a few years ago, but neglected the garden to begin with, as the inside of the house needed so much work. Now that the interior is complete, we have turned our attention to the garden. We dug up all the concrete and laid a lawn last autumn, and now we are planting climbing clematis and beautiful borders. We are enjoying watching our garden grow, as this is our first foray into gardening.

    Complete overhaul, we moved in and the garden was a mess.

  50. 21/05/2015 / 9:53 pm

    You’ve been busy Penny! We love mud kitchens, they just have to be rotated yearly in our garden. One year, they nearly dug under the neighbour’s fence. And the idea of the old sandpit raised bed is so clever. I might suggest it seeing as they favour mud over sand anyway. We were given a football goal and it’s never used. I look at yours and think it could be lovely with some sweet peas or something growing up it and lounging beneath…. might have to try that! The tins look amazing. Those succulents will soon be overflowing:-)

  51. Lorraine Tinsley

    I’ve been blogging lots about our garden! We made it wildlife friendly, charlie dug a hole and buried an old washing up bowl covered the sides with rocks and now has a mini pond. He’s hoping for frogs! But so far only millipedes! We also painted shells, stones and golf balls with acrylic paints to hide in the flower beds. I love wild flowers and can’t wait for ours to take.

  59. 22/05/2015 / 7:49 am

    We have some potted plants. No garden really just a terrace. At the moment we are just waiting for some seeds to grow and that is whats going on with our garden =) #hdygg

  60. My greenhouse is full of seedlings, not quite ready to go out yet – cucumbers, tomatoes, peppers, chillis and melons. This weekend I’m planting out geraniums and starting on the hanging baskets. Then some time sitting out there and enjoying it all. Our fennel is looking good too. I love it as fresh tea.

  61. 22/05/2015 / 8:59 am

    I’m about to attack the lawn with a can of spray paint to mark out the shape we want and reintroduce some defined borders. It’s long overdue and hopefully the spray paint will be almost right the first time round and we don’t end up with a garden looking like a crazy tennis court 🙂

  62. 22/05/2015 / 9:10 am

    Since my recent house move I’ve spent a fair amount of time looking at my garden..I haven’t had my own garden for quite a few years now so I’m planning what I would like to have out there. At the minute its mostly grassed but I think I aim to alter that soon!

  87. Susan B
    23/05/2015 / 4:12 am

    I’m ridiculously excited as my garden is no bigger than a modest patio but I’m digging over a small area for which I have big plans. It may well qualify for a record for the most plants planted in the smallest area. But I know what I want and I’m going to fit everything in – somehow – and make sure that all the plants thrive so both the family and wildlife can enjoy it.

    I’m just preparing my pots for lots of summer bedding,up here inScotland you really can’t plant anything until the very end of May as night frosts and cold days are still common.It annoys me that garden centres sell bedding plants from April,a good marketing ploy as the plants are likely to die and then you have to buy more !

    We are having an extension built and I am desperately trying to limit to the destruction in the garden. I have been transplanting what I can and taking cuttings so that I can save some of the beautiful plants we were lucky enough to inherit from the previous owner.

    We have quite a cottage garden/furry round the edges wildlife garden that has evolved gradually from a mess when we bought it 8 years ago. Sadly we are looking to move so I’m trying to tidy the garden up a bit to make it look a bit more appealing to the masses. However, the house is a cottage so hopefully a buyer will be looking for a cottage garden so I’m not going to change much.

  294. 13/06/2015 / 11:50 am

    Lovely giveaway. I am always in my garden doing something. Yesterday my daughter arrived home with a new hydrangea to add to our collection so I’ll be planting that later.

    I got my son and 2 of his friends to dig up our front lawn, which had more dandelions, moss and other weeds than grass. They dug up the old lawn, forked it over and sowed grass seed. Several weeks later it now looks amazing, and all it cost me was the price of a bag of seed and a few beers!
