All four varieties of Purple sprouting Broccoli have sprouted. Just got to keep them alive before they go in the ground. We've been harvesting last year's plants since January and are only just coming to the end. I'll probably grow on six plants of each variety, 24 plants sounds a lot but thats what I grew last year and none has made it to the freezer. . . . . #growyourownfood #growyourown #vegetables #vegpatch #allotment #growwhatyoueat #growyourownfood #raisedgardenbeds #raisedbeds

[ 🌷] We cut these tulips and brought them home with us from the garden. We rarely have flowers at home, because we always try to buy organically and locally - not always easy in Berlin! We’ve planted several small meadows out with wildflower seeds and hope they’ll provide the insects (and us) with fresh flowers over the summer 💐 #tulips #freshflowers #longweekend #kånken #fjällräven #relax #allotment #allotmentlife #gardening #berlin #greeninberlin #growyourownfood #happygardener #ediblegarden #organicgardening #urbangardener #gardenofinstagram #gardeningisfun #growyourownfoods #organicallygrown #organicurbangardening #urbangarden #growyourownway #cityfarmer #smallspacegardening #urbanjunglebloggers #eatwhatyougrow #hydrovegan #urbangardenersrepublic #thehappygardeninglife

Ze zijn er al bijna klaar voor, de tomaten zaailingen. Dit soort mooie dagen in de kas zie ik ze per dag groeien. Ook de paprika’s staan er veel beter bij dan vorig jaar. Nog een weekje en dan durf ik het wel aan ze uit te planten als de weersvoorspelling gunstig is. #girlgrowsgarden #urbangarden #lovegardening #moestuin #moestuingekte #vegetables #allotment #happy #green #groen #growfresh #gardenersofinstagram #groenten #volkstuin #eatwhatyougrow #kitchengarden #groententuin #growyourown #organicfood #backyard garden #potager #potagergarden #potagers #tomaten #tomatoes

Bringing my to the world of Instagram, link is in bio. Hey, talking of the world though we should probs look after it right, it is in our hands after all? Well this page is all about how we can do a little better, be a little better. It’s not about overhauling your life, it’s about taking some of those small steps and being a bit more eco conscious. Living more sustainably involves a lot of choices and trade offs. A Semi Green Life offers a non judgemental space to learn more and discuss these choices we face. #blogger #bloggergirl #greenblog #asemigreenlife #lowimpact #lowwaste #lowimpactmovement #reducewhatyouproduce #goingzerowaste #thehappiestplanet #mindfullysustainable #lifewithoutplastic #zerowastehome #nowaste #naturalliving #doitforearth #zeroish #wastefreeplanet #healthyfamily #bulkshopping #growyourown #growyourselfhealthy #allotment #gardenersworld #sustainableliving #allotmenttherapy #asemigreenlife #ecoliving #ecoconscious

P H L O X 🌸 As you may have seen on stories (or phlox highlight) I went a little overboard with the phlox Drummondi sowing! I only managed to pot up 1 tray of 3 and there were 80 strong seedlings! Good job I love them! Need to buy some more pots to do the rest of the potting up! My garden and containers will be full of cherry caramel. That can’t be a bad thing surely! So excited! ☀️🌿 ! #growyourown #gyo #sowyourown #sweetpeas #growwithzoe #gardening #gardenerslife #gardenersofinstagram #flowerstagram #flowers #containerplants #climbingplants #allotment #allotmentlove #allotmentlife

My new hot house /cold frame. Made out of some old conservatory windows and a pallet chopped in half. I think it's destined for chillies and aubergines this summer. I need to go collect some more well rotted manure from the nearby stables.

CABBAGES! I’ve got LOADS of cabbages and I can’t seem to part with any that grow. Since I potted the seedlings on, they’re really gone for it!! The other brassicas that I’d sown have started to sprout. It’s the little things in life ❤️🌱🌈☀️ . . . #plants #petal #flower #allotment #allotmentlife #vegetable #vegetables #vegetablegarden #vegetablegardening #greenhouse #growyourown #growyourownfood #garden #gardening #scottish #scotland #gay #lgbt #fresh #healthy #healthyfood #lifestyle #hobby #happy #spring #sunshine #growth #nature #recipe #cabbage

👀 We are finally getting somewhere with the chillis. There’s the healthiest and largest of my jalapeños. I must admit, I didn’t do very well with the peppers this year though... 🌱🌈 . . . . #plants #petal #flower #allotment #allotmentlife #vegetable #vegetables #vegetablegarden #vegetablegardening #greenhouse #growyourown #growyourownfood #garden #gardening #scottish #scotland #gay #lgbt #fresh #healthy #healthyfood #lifestyle #hobby #happy #spring #sunshine #growth #nature #recipe #jalapeno

Free shed! 💰I don't particularly believe in a higher power but if there is someone up there they've really been looking out for our allotment! 👏🏻 Popped to the plot after swapping my day off to find the builders clearing space for an on site toilet 🚽 (thank goodness) only to find them about to flatten this old tool shed! 😱 I asked them to chuck it over our fence and after some negotiation about how many beers I would give them in return now we have a shed! This will be a great storage space to keep the plot tidy but also those walls a perfect vertical growing space for more hanging baskets! Happy Easter all! 🏠🍺🌼🐣

We only had a flying visit to the allotment yesterday on the way to a family get together, but I was happy to see signs of life kicking off in the polytunnel! 😊🌱 . More courgettes and sunflowers, to join those already started in the greenhouse (Lauren will be especially excited to see the Defender courgettes she sowed herself 💚), and the sweetcorn I started in root trainers the other day have just started to poke through. 🌻🌽

Pear blossom takes over wonderfully at this time of year from cherry blossom. It may not be quite as showy as some of the cherry cultivars but is quite simply beautiful. And theres the added bonus of pears later in the year 🍐🍐🍐 . Pear trees can grow into medium sized trees of over 6 x 6m but most are grafted onto a rootstock that will keep them small enough for the tiniest of gardens. 🍐🍐🍐 . If you want fruit its a good idea to plant two pears that blossom at the same time close to one another to help guarantee pollination. Some crab apple trees can also cross pollinate with pears if you'd prefer a bit of variation. 🍐🍐🍐 . #pear #peartree #fruit #kitchengarden #potager #allotment #mygarden #gardentips #gardenideas #gardenista #blossom #pearblossom #smalltrees at London, United Kingdom

Mina lobata also known as the firecracker vine. I am so so please I have 1 seed of this georgous flower vine that has germinated. Do look them up, and if you can grow them. They are an eye catcher for sure. And another name for them is Spanish flag, the red, yellow and black colours on the flowers are just stunning. Have you grown them before? It has only taken me 3 attempts (of however many seeds) to get 1 plant. But I will make sure to grow this beauty with pride😍. . .

The humble van gremlins are fixed 😃😃😃 After a bit of troubleshooting that mainly involved wiggling various wires we traced the problem to a loose terminal on the battery. Clean-up of the terminals with bicarb of soda and a wire brush, a tweak with the spanner and she's happy again 🙏🏻 . Still only manages 40mph so apologies to the lorries on the M25 yesterday who overtook us 😂 . From box to bowl in under a minute. Fuel your day the humble oat way ☀️🥑💚 . . . . #breakfastbowl #smoothiebowl #smoothiebowls #nicecream #cleaneats #healthybreakfast #feedfeed #eeeeeats #colours #colourful #freshfruit #fruit #berries #flowers #allotment #eathealthy #healthyfoods #feelinggood #goodvibes #plantbased #vegan #veganuary #superfoods #blending #oats #instahealth #foodstyling #foodinspiration #londonfoodie #surreylife at Weybridge

🍋 And look what we have here... I collected seeds from a lemon I’d used and this one seemed to have a fight! This really is my favourite time of year, everywhere you turn there’s vitality! 🌱❤️🌈 #lemons . . . . #plants #petal #flower #allotment #allotmentlife #vegetable #vegetables #vegetablegarden #vegetablegardening #greenhouse #growyourown #growyourownfood #garden #gardening #scottish #scotland #gay #lgbt #fresh #healthy #healthyfood #lifestyle #hobby #happy #spring #sunshine #growth #nature #recipe

👀 Somewhere in my witchy heart there is a space for lavender. This should do pollinators nicely 🐝 🦋! These plants are covered in new buds so I’ll be taking some to dry at the end of the season. ❤️🌈 . . . . #plants #petal #flower #allotment #allotmentlife #vegetable #vegetables #vegetablegarden #vegetablegardening #greenhouse #growyourown #growyourownfood #garden #gardening #scottish #scotland #gay #lgbt #fresh #healthy #healthyfood #lifestyle #hobby #happy #spring #sunshine #growth #nature #recipe

👀 This is a moneymaker tomato 🍅 that’s been growing in a cubanegs bag (Jim Fritz). When I transplanted the seedling, I buried it all the way up to the leaves to promote root growth. The rest of the seedlings were potted on in to pots, stem deep but in multipurpose and they haven’t grown anywhere near the size! 😮 🌱☀️ . . . . #plants #petal #flower #allotment #allotmentlife #vegetable #vegetables #vegetablegarden #vegetablegardening #greenhouse #growyourown #growyourownfood #garden #gardening #scottish #scotland #gay #lgbt #fresh #healthy #healthyfood #lifestyle #hobby #happy #spring #sunshine #growth #nature #recipe
