About

The world of horticulture is changing. Urban gardeners are finding new and exciting ways of growing things in city spaces – no matter how small – and busy professionals are turning to home grown vegetables and time outside to improve health and wellbeing. Initiatives and new brands are popping up all over the place, opening our eyes to a partially forgotten hobby, and introducing new ideas for planting and reconnecting with nature.

The Garden Fairy blog brings together event reviews, places to visit and new ideas in the world of gardening, as well as my observations about how the horticulture industry is changing and the increasing interest from city dwellers. I’m also documenting my own urban gardening experience and lessons learnt from growing¬†in a tiny London space.
