Brand New YouTube Series Starts Today!!

Plant of the Week video- part 1

Well I've been uploading videos to YouTube, at the weekend, for the last 18 months now, and today is the day I launch a new midweek series called "Plant of the Week"

Pumpkin Becki Plant Week midweek YouTube video series

I'll be sharing facts about a different plant every week, some that I grow in my own garden, and some I will have to go searching for. There'll be ornamental plants, vegetables, fruit, fungi and trees too

So please join me, 7pm GMT today, and if you have any plants you'd like me to talk about in future videos, be sure to leave me a comment here, or on the Plant of the Week videos on YouTube 💜

Two Tier DIY Fairy Garden - Part 2 of 2

A Fairy Tale Ending in the Garden

Hi everyone!

My epic Fairy Garden build is complete. I'm so proud of how it turned out, and I really want to share the video with you, plus some bonus photographs.

Materials and supplier lists are in the description bar of each video so do go and check those out too.

If you watch Part 1 of 2 you'll see me talk about the arch, screen, fence and cottage that I hand made specifically for this garden. Part 2 shows it all coming together, the creation of the patio and paths, and discusses all the plants I use.

Daisy's 2nd birthday - Time for a Guinea Pig Party!

What a transformation

Who'd have thought two years ago that my little wisp of fluff, Daisy Doo would turn into such a magnificent creature. 

When we first saw her, we had no idea quite how her crazy coat would grow, or what a wonderful peacekeeper she would grow up to be, we just knew we needed her to be part of our lives.

She was so small she was dwarfed by even the tiniest of bowls

You're a super-special girl Daisy Doo, and we love you bucketloads.

Come and join Daisy and the herd at Daisy's 2nd birthday party
