Grow Your Own Garden

Green spaces not only improve our health and vitality, but they can also provide a cheap, diverse and organic area for wildlife as well as for providing food for us and the perfect outdoor classroom.

Creating a green space in our own homes and outdoor areas has a multitude of benefits as well as teaching our children about nature and where our food comes from.

Starting from February 2021, this new service from Thistle and Pheasant-Berry takes inspiration from a UK-wide project about creating habitats and green spaces for nature, as well as creating space in our outdoor areas to grow food and learning about the habitats and wildlife around us.

The options below are designed so that you can decide what you’d like to investigate, grow and create in your garden.

Please click on the "learn more" to be taken to the services on offer and start creating your habitats and edible green spaces from February.

To book your service or for more information, please message me via the contact form on the home page.

Details of what seeds are available are at the bottom of this page and all of this produce will also be grown in our very own cottage garden and will be available to purchase from May.

Habitats can be seen throughout the year and create havens for a multitude of flora and fauna.

Through creating a space for nature, we encourage it to thrive and by careful observations we can ensure that native species numbers improve.

Throughout the year I will be offering advice on how to create your own habitat spaces in your gardens as well as running lessons for family groups.
