When the previous owners built the extension for our kitchen and utility room, they created a small, dark corner outside, behind the bedroom they’d made in the converted garage. It’s only about 2m front to back and 1.5m wide, with brick walls on two sides and a panel fence on the third. The remaining side is partly blocked by a tool store. It gets a little light in the mornings and in the middle of the day in the summer, but otherwise is in shade.

We’ve been here 9 months already and have spent some time tidying the garden, but in order to develop it and make it ours, we needed to start planting, and in order to do that, there must be somewhere to plant! I have no idea what the people who laid out the garden, nor the people who had it before us, were thinking or wanting but it is possible to see a kind of story.
