As part of Brimsmore Gardens’ 25th anniversary celebrations, we ran a competition for schools and local community groups, inviting them to get in touch and apply for a gardening kit or to have a commemorative Silver Birch tree planted. Over the past couple of months, the selected schools and groups have been collecting their kits, while Karen and the team have been travelling around the local area planting the trees to mark our big birthday.

It’s been such a pleasure to hear about so many people doing inspiring things to get children outside and interacting with wildlife and growing. This is something which we are always looking to encourage, so we are delighted to be able to support this new wave of young gardeners.

We look forward to seeing how their efforts unfold!

On Sunday 21 May Alexa, Karen, Rachel, Lizzie, Brian, Ryan, Kate, Roy, Nicky, Samuel and Helen will embark on a 100ft abseil down the side of Yeovil Hospital. Their brave efforts are for a great cause, and one very close to all their hearts as they raise money for improvements at Yeovil Hospital’s Cancer Ward.

This is a completely new and terrifying experience for the team, so please do all you can to show your support, whether it’s donating through their Just Giving page or cheering them on as they descend down the hospital.

Good luck to you all, we’re all behind you!

The wonderful thing about growing plants in containers is the flexibility that it brings, such as choosing the perfect size to fit your space and being able to change their position throughout the year. Container plants are brilliant for brightening up a dark corner, adding colour and interest to a patio or even as a centre piece to a larger display. There is a wide variety of container plants available all year round, which are easy to look after, what’s more they don’t require the need for heavy gardening equipment and all the while keep those pesky pests at bay!

With summer just around the corner, I’m on a mission to prove that everyone can have beautiful potted plants no matter the size of their garden. So each week I will be posting the progress of my own potted plants to show you just how easy it is to introduce fabulous plants into your garden.
