From Field to Garden

A talk by Jane Bastow

Gardener Jane Bastow gave a delightful talk about the transformation of her one acre plot from simple lawn into a personal garden sanctuary.

Jane moved to a small bungalow, sat in a one acre plot, in 1992.  Back then the garden contained old sheds, enormous compost heaps and a number of structures made out of telegraph poles.

Over the years the plot became a garden containing ponds, flower beds, raised beds, paved areas and greenhouses.  As her horticultural knowledge grew and the bungalow was extended, Jane added more plants and created a variety of areas with different microclimates.   Jane became, among other things, an expert in building with brick and a collector of snowdrops.

The project continues to this day.   Jane opens her garden to the public and grows plants for sale for charity.
