Quiet weekend:gardening

Updated: Sep 1, 2018

With the daffodils dying back and my trees bursting with blossom, clematis cascading, and the tulips almost there, Spring is definitely in full bloom. I’ve been spending more time outside pottering this weekend. I know I have a small courtyard garden but it comes with a bit of maintenance and revamping now and again.

I’ve been seeking inspiration recently as the summer season approaches so I’ve started to follow more green-fingered Instagram accounts, particularly as I’d like to fill my raised beds with some new planting schemes over the next few years.

I’ve had a quiet weekend at home with some outdoor time as well as getting to grips with Instagram! One peek at these accounts will hopefully make you want to dust off your trowel and get your wellies on.

Founded by the former Head Gardener at Sarah Raven’s Sussex farm, Perch Hill, the Botanika Floral feed oozes all the florals you want to find in your cutting garden.

The epic sea of tulips was snapped by floral stylist Charlie McCormick in the garden of The Land Gardeners. Goals for next year right there.

Over on their Oxfordshire flower farm you’ll find an abundance of beautiful seasonal blooms at Green and Gorgeous arranged to perfection in the wild and romantic hedgerow style.

For those of you used to run of the mill garden websites, think again when it comes to Shop Terrain. Their Instagram feed reflects their ethos for creating a restful and natural hideaway.

Can you imagine spending your days working the land at Kew? Alexander Hoyle is living the dream as Gardener at the Royal Botanic Gardens. I wish I’d made it down to London to see those Cherry Blossoms in all their glory.

Committed to using own-grown florals to craft the most beautiful arrangements, sisters Emily and Lucy at 3 Acre Blooms have a glorious feed that will put you under a floral spell.

Any other green fingered accounts I should be following? Where do you get your garden inspiration from?
