The Garden Edit

oooh boy did i go down the proverbial rabbit hole when i discovered The Garden Edit. i don’t think i have ooh’d and aah’d so much in a while. first of all, what a BEAUTIFUL site. second of all, what a DREAMY shop. founded by English gardener John Tebbs, The Garden Edit sports a collection of products for, and inspired by, the garden – bringing together a modern collection of products that embody functionality, timelessness and beauty. those copper bird feeders by Vasse Vaught are something else! and they even stock those lovely illustration by Alicia Galer, who i blogged about last year.

John launched The Garden Edit in the winter of 2013. With many of his working days held hostage to the weather, he decided to make the most of the downtime and embark on sourcing and selling the things he loves. The collection reflects John’s personal aesthetic – minimal, well-designed products from craftspeople, artists, publishing houses and family run businesses.

upside down vegetables

what an amazing idea if you don’t have much of a garden (or a garden at all) and you want to grow your own veggies

the advantages of upside-down gardening are many: it saves space; there is no need for stakes or cages; it foils pests and fungus; there are fewer, if any, weeds; there is efficient delivery of water and nutrients thanks to gravity; and it allows for greater air circulation and sunlight exposure.

cact’aaaight

does anyone else extend words that end in i, and throw a gangster ‘aaaight’ on the end? well i do, and now you probably will too. cact’aaaight?! these cacti are throughly un-gangster, apart from the fact that they’re kind of dangerous (nay, prickly.) i’ve never been very partial to cacti, but i am now – the colours swayed me. photos by elly yap
