This is my sand pit that I'm hoping I can turn into a garden in the desert.
I decided to plant in rows and leave the plants in their coir pots (well the ones that didn't fall apart)
This meant I was gardening in the dark by the time I'd finished digging holes, planting and watering.
To help me decide what plants to grow I've visited garden centres, bought seeds that grow in these climates and taken note of other plants growing in similar conditions and how they've been maintained.
The sandpit looks a little scruffy this morning, but nothing appears to have perished over night so all I can do, apart from regular watering, is sit back and fingers crossed something takes and flowers.The Miracle Gardens where you can see how the professionals created a garden in the desert.
