This week I’ve got my hands on the newly released gardening book ‘Urban Flowers’ by Carolyn Dunster. A very thrifty DIY-focussed book, it contains hundreds of ideas for making the most of your outdoor space, no matter how little garden you have. And the good news is that you can win a copy in my giveaway so read on to enter the competition below…In this book, Carolyn demonstrates how it is possible to turn even the smallest space into a blooming urban paradise with colourful flowers and a thriving habitat for wildlife too. So whether you’ve got a patch in the countryside or a balcony in the city, you’ll be sure to find a handy project in this book.
Urban Flowers helps to identify which plants will grow best in your garden and, the thing I found most interesting about the book, it provides planting ‘recipes’ to create colourful palettes of blooms all year round. I’ve always wondered how some gardens look great in every season and now I know how to do it for myself!
Of course, because the book focuses on urban locations, there’s plenty of inspiration for container gardening too. I love the quick and simple DIY projects in the book – the ideas for repurposing items you already have and turning them into planters are a stroke of genius! It’s so easy to inject a bit of colour into the garden by planting up containers, and it keeps maintenance to a minimum so it’s definitely something I’m interested in learning more about.Check out this step-by-step guide from the book. It shows you how to plant from seed and allows you to create a garden for very little money – all you need is a little patience while waiting for the plants to grow! There are so many how-to guides and easy DIY ideas in this book that you’ll be bursting to get stuck into projects the and start gardening this very weekend!
