Introducing No Faff Gardening

6 April , 2023

I truly believe that gardening should be no-faff. What I mean by this is, you shouldn’t have to buy lots of special tools or have lots of specialist knowledge, or most important thing, be too intimidated to start.

Some websites, books, and magazines about gardening are so overwhelming that you think it is a really skilled field, that only some people can succeed with.

This is simply not true!

Everyone can grow plants, even if you don’t have a garden if you have a windowsill, balcony, small garden, or an allotment. There is something you can grow.

Gardening myths

In this series of blog posts, I hope to explain how gardening can be no-faff, you don’t have to follow lots of complicated rules.

Mostly you just need the basics to get started

  • Seeds / bulbs
  • Pots
  • Soil
  • Water
  • Sun

There are of course lots of other tools and equipment that you can buy, but I have found that you can slowly accumulate extras over the years rather than months.

Gardening doesn’t have to be a full on make it perfect the first year (even if social media makes you believe this) It also doesn’t have to be expensive, if you have a little patience.

Yes if you want a fully filled garden with large established plants, that will cost ££££ but if you are happy to grow some plants from seed, you can have a blooming (literally) flower bed this summer.

Join me to find out more about no-faff gardening, where I possibly break most of the ‘rules’ and don’t read instructions but yet have gorgeous Instagram-worthy flower beds.
