Addicted to Gardening: The Detling Garden Show

This weekend was the first time I visited the Detling Garden Show. It was also the first time I realized I have a serious addiction to gardening. Although my outdoor space is limited I couldn’t resist buying a few more plants for my Magical Fairy Garden. Over the next few weeks I’ll be learning about them and sharing my findings here with all of you.

For those of you that have never been to the Detling Garden Show it is a must! There are over 300 exhibitors selling a wide variety of plants, stalls from various wild life trusts and all sorts of wonderful garden ornaments including chimes, fantastic children’s play houses and gigantic wooden Gorillas (just what every garden needs!) I have also discovered there is a 2nd garden show in the Autumn! Hurrah!

My new plants are all settling happily in my garden. Here is a quick peek at some of them:

Heart Ease or Wild Pansy


Cat Mint (A Treat for Nutmeg)

A Japanese Maple Tree (I LOVE these trees!)

    My my this is looking all too serious! The garden has certainly expanded since my visit. Wonderful images!

    Yes it is getting very serious! I didn’t even mention the 5 other plants (mainly herbs) that I bought. Next week I am being visited by someone from the Kent Wildlife Trust as part of their Wild About Gardens Competition – I am nervous!
