One of my favourite spaces of our new house has got to be the garden. We have just been loving having so much extra space, sunshine and fresh air, right on our doorstep! The only slight snag is that I have no idea what I’m doing when it comes to gardening. I’ve always wanted my own outside space, but having lived in flats previously I’ve not had a chance to practice my gardening skills. Now we have a garden to look after, I really need to learn…..quickly!
To make a start with our garden project, I was excited to take up the challenge from wilko to transform a small space within our garden into something new and beautiful. They asked me to visit their store and spend no more than £50 on gardening products to see how a little can go a long way when it comes to shopping at wilko. So, last weekend we headed over to our nearest store to see what we could pick up!
We headed straight to the gardening section – which was extensive! I was really surprised to see such a big selection of products and plants, all at really reasonable prices for gardens big, small and for indoor projects too. I decided I wanted to make a sensory garden area for Violet, which will be an area she can enjoy and eventually learn a bit about gardening too. Here is what we bought….
As you can see, this is quite a haul for £50! With prices like £1.50 for gardening gloves and only £5 for a trowel, wilko prices make gardening equipment, plants and decorations really great value for money, plus all the items felt really sturdy and high in quality too. Whilst we were at wilko, we did stock up on other bits like homewares, cleaning products, toiletries and of course pick’n’mix for the journey home too – got to be done! ?
So, without further ado, I’ve made a little video of our garden transformation… have a watch:
And….. here is the finished area! I think it looks really lovely and Violet absolutely LOVES exploring the new plants, watching birds come to the feeder. The lights make it an even more eye catching sensory area as they change colour and have little bubbles inside. I can’t wait to show her strawberries growing (which she will eventually eat too!). We’ve made a lovely space on a small budget, plus it was so simple too! Now I am thinking about setting up a small greenhouse for fruits or vegetables, but that is a completely different story.
