This weekend, I said goodbye to an old friend. For the last 15 years, i've spent most Sundays, and quite a few evenings in their company, in the warm, enjoying my gardening.
But now it's time to say goodbye to make room for a bigger more grown up friendship.
For the last 15 years, my Alton Cedar Greenhouse has been my partner in gardening. It was presented to me with a big bow around it for Christmas the year we moved into our first house, we'd asked all our friends and family for money towards it, and still it bust our budget, but it was soooo worth it, and over the years it has produced plants worth many many times it's value.
So at a time of year when most people have greenhouses full to the rafters, - i've had to clear mine out.
My windowsills are full, - and i'm delaying sowing a lot of things as the new one should be arriving in 2 weeks.
In the meantime, - the team from Wimbledon Garden services will be making me a new base and building the dwarf wall for my grownup plant house.
i'll keep you updated with the progress.
