New Book By Sally Nex, Garden Writer

Sally Nex is a writer at The Garden magazine, the Guardian, Grow Your Own magazine as well as teaching at the online My Gardening School.

We met her via Twitter and through emails a few years ago – and she is lovely. Her writing too is always interesting, worth a read.

Sally gardens in Somerset, on an acre of land, where she says she battles the brambles and also looks after chickens and a flock of Dorset Down rare breed sheep.

And now she has a new book coming out, based on Growing Your Own for Self Sufficiency.

Published by Green Books, a publisher who provide all sorts of wonderful and weird titles in their list, we are sure this book will be a fine one, rooted in practical experience but written with an authors eye.

Worth a read, lovely Modern Minters!

Running Low

Sorry to people asking for some of our pruning tools, but we have run out of a few items and are waiting for more to arrive.

So apologies again if you are missing out, but everything should be back in stock by next week. Many thanks for all your support here at Modern Mint! Darren

A Very British Garden – New Garden Talk For 2019

A brand new garden talk for 2019? My, what exciting news! Having had a busy summer, with the topiary work exploding after the Guardian article, I have plans to write a new garden talk for next year. So far I have written 6 different talks in the 4 years I have been running Modern Mint, 4 of which are still available for you to book. They are: What Do I Do With This Space? A garden talk that looks at how other cultures treat their outdoor spaces. A mixture of funny stories and practical advice, it shares techniques people from …
