Always loved to potter in the garden but only really in the last couple of years, have I embraced it by redesigning our space and growing from seed

Helianthus annuus 'Teddy Bear'

These and African Marigolds were the last seeds I sowed this year. I let the hubby have free range in the front garden so he wanted these 😀 @topiarytragedy

Can wait to get sowing more of these! Definitely one of my favourites from last year. The blooms were on average 4 inches in diameter, lasted for ever and a wonderful compact plant no taller than 18inches so perfect along a path 💛💛😍 #flashbackfriday
