Welcome to Sash in the Garden

Sash in the Garden began as an Instagram site on 20th March 2020. Lockdown was looming ahead of us and the daunting thought of not being able to leave our homes for three months. I knew I would spend the next three months indulging in my true passion, gardening, and I thought I would try and help others get through lockdown with the help of gardening. It is a well proven fact that gardening is good for your soul and mental health. It has helped me in my darkest hours and I hoped by starting Sash in the Garden, I may be able to help others. I have been passionate about gardens since I was a child.

After leaving school I worked in the City for many years until having our first son in December 2001. I spent my weekends gardening for friends and redesigning their gardens and designing new planting schemes. My dream was to always give up my City job and retrain in landscape and garden design. This only became a reality once I moved back to Yorkshire with our young family in 2007.

The Garden is open for private garden tours and there are a number of open days and evenings throughout the summer. Please do get in touch if you would like to visit.

There is a large cut flower patch and florists are welcome to come and pick seasonal cut flowers.
