Gel Vivian’s is this weeks featured garden. Her garden is very small, but you can see Gel has transformed the small space into into a relaxing space. She describes her garden as:

I moved to my present home in Southborough seven years ago and typical of many Victorian houses inherited a long thin strip of garden with it’s only feature being a shed!

I soon set to and created flower borders and erected trellis to hide the shed.

The garden is now filled with clematis, climbing roses, jasmine and honeysuckle and as many perennials to attract the bees and butterflies as I could cram in.

With its south westerly aspect, on a warm summers evening, it’s a lovely place to sit while sipping something chilled.
