I love to forage for apples, raspberries, blueberries, rose hips and brambles. Don’t worry my friends, I seem to know what is good for me as mummy discovered last…

Tom’s Winter Gardening Diary


Hello. Welcome to Tom’s Winter Gardening Diary. How has your winter been my friends? Our winter has been fun. Last year we decided to plant more bare-root hedgelings so we were very excited when bare-root plants became available. We had some delivered in December. And then it snowed. I love snow. And then it was Christmas. I love Christmas. And…

Tom’s Autumn Gardening Diary


Hello. Welcome to Tom’s Autumn Gardening Diary. It’s been a long time my friends since my last gardening diary. Tillie ruptured her achilles tendon when she chased a deer in the woods and had to have an operation to fix it. She then had 6 weeks crate rest and I looked after her with mummy. I didn’t want to leave…

Tom’s April Snow Gardening Diary


Well golly gosh my friends. You really couldn’t write this stuff without believing that the April fool goblin carried on making fun through the whole of April. At the beginning of April I brought you Tom’s Daffodil Diaries and we had enjoyed some lovely gardening weather in Tom’s garden. Then, on 24th April the weather goblins flicked a switch, turned…

Tom’s Daffodil Diaries


I love spring. It’s yellow. Yellow is my favourite colour. It’s a happy colour. And it smells nice too. Tom’s garden is starting to burst into yellow life with daffodil popping up everywhere with their cheerful little faces. Dancing in the breeze, singing in the sunshine and laughing in the rain. We have native daffodils (I’ll call them Jane Daffodils)…

Tom’s Crocus Pocus Gardening Diary


Welcome to Tom’s Crocus Pocus Gardening Diary. It’s been magical in Tom’s Garden. The fairies, pixies and elves have been busy sprinkling their magic dust to make everything grow and there are lots of surprises to be uncovered. Despite cold frosty mornings (great for zoomies), the weather is getting warmer during the day and we enjoyed our first game of…

Tom’s Sleepy Gardening Diary


Hello. Welcome to Tom’s Sleepy Gardening Diary. The garden is sleepy in January. Like it’s eaten too much pudding and cheese (yum) at Christmas, and wants to digest it with a big sleep. Even the gardening pixies stay hidden away and don’t come out to sprinkle their magic pixie dust to make things grow. We have all weathers in January…
