I had followed lizzie on Instagram for a few months before subscribing to her beautiful monthly boxes. I saw people sharing their seeds and bulbs and was a little jealous that I wanted in on the rose press garden action. I have now been a subscriber just over a year and have never looked back.
At the beginning of every month I know it's creeping up to subscription day, I get so excited like a kid in a sweet shop. As a busy mum of 4 boys, 3 of them been babies, this subscription box helps me get into the garden and clear my head. This is my time in my sanctuary. It has massively helped my mental health and that in itself is worth every penny.
Not only have I managed to grow beautiful flowers from seeds, but I've also gained a lovely friend in lizzie. She is always there for gardening advice, no question is a silly question! And doesn't speak complicated gardening jargon!
If you are thinking of subscribing, what are you waiting for? ...
So from been a complete beginner, I've learnt many things along the way. I think one thing that is a massive part is patience! Rome wasn't built in a day, give your flowers time to bloom to their full potential this way you will enjoy them so much more!
Seeing buds appear on your stems, from the seeds you've grown and nurtured is so rewarding!
The one thing I'm really looking forward to is trying out more bulbs/ tubers and bare roots. I would like to learn a lot more about these, especially spring bulbs, I'm aiming for a garden full of lizzies beautiful tulips next year!
