meet the gardener

Laura Bloomsbury

I still call myself by the epithet of where in London I lived and gardened for quarter of a century.

In March 2019, I moved North to South Yorkshire, bringing with me a significant assortment of potted plants and trees. These I dotted around a spacious walled garden and was pleased to see that all plants had survived the journey and enjoyed a wonderful summer.

In December 2019 I moved house again into a much smaller rental property. My potted garden was slotted into a pocket-sized gravelled area. Just enough space to accommodate all my plants with room for just a few extras.

Summer 2021: Planning to settle down with many of my plants putting roots in Derbyshire soil. Others will remain contained for a makeover. Watch this space!
