About WB Garden Blog

A garden in the UK East Midlands with an average gardener trying to grow a decent crop of vegetables (and some flowers) but always hampered by not having enough time….

The plots described are pretty small (see map on map page), the soil is very stoney and well drained (the underlying geology is river gravels), but has had a fair amount of organic matter added since I’ve been here

I produce my own compost, which is added to the garden – usually for the runner beans each spring, but some spread over other areas.

There is a big wooden framed greenhouse in one corner.

The garden face roughly South and is subject to the usual British mixture of rain, winds and sun but hardly any snow.
