Carol Bartlett - The Sunday Gardener
Carol loves gardening, and for more than 20 years much of Carol's free time has been spent creating gardens and gardening, reading and researching plants and taking photographs of plants.
Carol lives in the North England and in her own garden grows many of the popular garden shrubs and flowering plants featured as images on this website. In addition, she has created a garden with diversity including wildflowers, natural areas, herbaceous borders, a wildlife pond, trees and wetland plants, along with a vegetable plot.
Carol created the Sunday Gardener website to share a love of gardening no matter what size your garden or vegetable plot, balcony, terrace or large plot. The idea of the website is to inspire and encourage others to enjoy the garden and reap the benefits from being outside with nature. The pleasure of choosing, planting and then growing and enjoying your own flowers and vegetables. Gardening enables you to get lost in the fascination of plants and to observe our native wildlife. Experience the highs and lows, the joys and frustrations of growing all types of plants. No two growing years are ever the same, the garden and seasons are always changing, creating more challenges.
Carol's philosophy is that gardening is a great combination of the therapeutic and practical. It is a cliche, but still true for many, that the garden is a haven, a place in which to escape the day-to-day pressures.
