The Morningstar Kitchen Garden

One of my big plans for next year is a vertical garden, along a sunny wall, to grow salads and herbs. We moved in this July, so at present the ‘kitchen garden’ is just a single hand-built wooden trough with a trellis, on the back wall of our house. However, I plan to get the most out of this little space. I had some Pumpkin ‘Munchkin’ plants which I’d started off at our previous place, so I trained these up the trellis, and planted up the trough below with mixed summer lettuces.

About gardennomey

I'm a Writtle-trained horticulturist who has worked as a full-time gardener, then moved on to marketing plants online for various well-known suppliers and producing content for two of the best gardening magazines in the country. I've been lucky with my career. A while ago I decided that full-time gardening wasn't as enjoyable as I imagined and, seeing as that's the only thing I'm really trained in, that seemed like quite a waste. I was determined to get into garden writing in one way or another. Then I stumbled accross a 'Marketing Assistant' job for Gardening Direct, which, thankfully, they offered me. It's amazing how a career can progress and be turned from something you're not sure you like, into your dream job. As the go-to gardening expert at Gardening Direct, I had a great time being in charge of all the garden copy-writing at the same time as gaining experience and knowledge in marketing and website management. From there, I moved on to work for more garden suppliers, Which? Gardening Magazine and I think I have found my niche... it's a weird set of skills, but I am happy with it! Thanks for reading :-) Naomi
