A young couple in my immediate family are in mid move – they had sold their small starter home with the immaculate and very productive patio / veggie plot and were just expecting the mortgage approval through on their desired ‘pile in the country’.  The first disappointment came recently when they asked for updates and found their buyer had actually bought another similar house but not told their agent.  Major blow.  But there were other keen viewers so hopes of a deal were still warm.

They were getting excited about the new house but one of them was far more excited about the prospect of owning a very much larger garden – oh the heady prospects for an equally impressive patio but with bigger and better furniture and so much nicer vegetable beds being available.  But mostly the gorgeous accessories that come with an admirable garden!
