I’m going fantasy shopping with £750 to buy toys, plants and features for my dream family garden.
This is what our garden looks like currently. We need to replace the toddler toys with something more interesting.
I asked son2 to draw his dream play area and he came back with this picture of a climbing frame.
And then I keep dabbling in trying to grow a few vegetables like tomatoes and courgettes in pots on the patio. But they suffer from pests, the wind, being too wet, so we don’t get much of a crop.
This is a real shame and it was made more poignant this year, as son1 planted the seeds on the first day he complained of pains back in April, 3 weeks before he was diagnosed with leukaemia. I tried as best as I could in brief visits back home from the hospital to keep his plants growing.
So I would love to get a greenhouse and try to get a few decent crops. A step towards self-sufficiency. I would buy one like this which costs £224.25
And finally I would love to grow my own fruit. We had apple and plum trees at our old house and I really miss them. So I’ve chosen an apple tree for £34.99 and a gooseberry bush for £9.99
