First Garden

Our new gardening blog

We're really excited to reveal our brand new gardening blog, First Garden, which follows the horticulteral adventures of the lovely Hazel, who is new to gardening, and dreams of creating a vibrant outdoor space for her young family to enjoy.  

Hazel lives in a new build half an hour from Edinburgh. The promise of a garden tempted her from the city, only she has never had a garden before and isn’t sure where to start. She does have a book called ‘Garden plants of Scotland’, a kitchen spoon and a pair of rubber gloves though.

In the First Garden blog we’ll follow Hazel as she attempts to grow her first garden with the help of the team at Pentland Plants.
