Small gardens can often be a little challenging to make them look good. Just how do you fit everything you want into a small garden?

How do you make a small space garden look and feel larger? The answer to these questions and more were answered on the Gardening Today web radio show.

It was my great pleasure to be interviewed by writer and broadcaster Kate Copsey the other week. We discussed in detail how to make any small garden look amazing.

Watch the replay below to find out how you can transform your garden quickly and easily, without needing to spend a fortune. Unfortunately, the phone connection did get a little weird occasionally, so the sound quality does jump in places, but stay with it, it soon clears again.

      Thanks for sharing the show. I’d say that if you want to make a garden look larger you should not clutter the space with a lot of garden ornaments. You need to create as much open space as possible and then accessorise on the garden borders. Thanks for the advice Rachel.

        Yes, definitely, less clutter is always a good thing in a small space – great advice thank you 🙂
