Hello, I’m Lisa, and I love to garden. I live in rural Perthshire, Scotland, with my Husband Gregg, our daughter Stella and a flock of feathered and furry creatures. Over the last ten years we’ve been renovating an old cottage, making a garden and running a little studio. We have a large veg plot, a secluded courtyard style garden with herbaceous borders, an orchard, and lots of wild areas waiting to be tamed! You cross the bridge over the Bruckley burn to get to the chicken house, the ducks and geese love puddling around on the water, as do we!
My passion for gardening has slightly taken over. So much so, that my little textile studio has been turned into a pop-up tea shed where we serve tea and cake, open up the garden to visitors and have plants for sale. It has to fit around family life so we don’t open up on any regular days, but that’s part of the fun, it’s a treat to pop up and see us when we are open.
We’ll happily open up for walkers or gardening groups if we’re around. A few days notice is all we need. We also run courses, our Christmas Wreath making courses are always popular, have a look in the photo gallery to see what we do.
I love to write about our life here, the trials and tribulations of gardening in Scotland, living the rural life and just generally having fun. Pop over to the blog to catch up on our adventures. I also write for Sarah Ravens blog, Garlic and Sapphire, currently the only blogger on the team living and gardening in Scotland.
