Projects

Every spring we rent a stall at the May bank holiday fete where we sell a variety of homegrown plants that are hardened off in the great British weather. Sharon’s been running this show for a decade now!

For the first time, we have promised to provide 14 large and bold summer hanging baskets for display at the our local pub! Click here to see our blog ‘Growing Summer Hanging Baskets’ https://homegrownandhopeful.co.uk/2019/10/24/growing-summer-hanging-baskets/

The ultimate compost!

Were doing the research on fertile compost and what plants need. But taking it to the next level by creating our own elements!

Biochar

We got a kiln which transforms a lot of wood into Activated Charcoal to use in the garden! We were interested in what makes the most fertile soil and how charcoal can help provide a welcoming boost to the garden!
Nutrients are absorbed in the charcoal giving an accessible supply to the plants throughout the seasons.

The Wormery

Built to a vision, it was once just a dream of ours to have a wormery that transforms waste into rich soil! We feed our worms with raw veg waste from the kitchen, and the liquid run off is collected ina bucket underneath and used as a liquid fertiliser!
