Hello and welcome to The Old Orchard Garden blog! Here you’ll find all our ramblings from the kitchen garden, recipes full with homegrown goodness, videos containing advice and some handy tips as well as lot’s of inspiration.

But first, let me introduce you all to the garden… We moved to this little 1 acre plot of land during the Summer of 2022 with some big ideas. We were told it used to be an old orchard garden but unfortunately only 4 of the trees remained. However, we’ll be adding some more fruit trees to create a smaller orchard area where the chickens and beehives will live. They’ll be a polytunnel area with a fruit cage to the side, some large herbacous flower borders and not forgetting the kitchen garden! Of course this is all going to take some time but we’re very excited to take you all on the journey with us.

My name is Katie and I’m the blogger, the photographer, the one sitting inside the shed cooking up recipes and the crazy person talking to herself on the video camera!

I’m currently 33 years of age and I love nothing more than being outside surrounded by nature with my little Jack Russell Ted by my side. I’ve been a keen gardener since 2013 when my Dad first got an allotment, not long after that I put my name down for my own plot and since then my fingers have permanently been green. 

I waved goodbye to my beautiful little purple potting shed in Hampshire during 2021 due to a house move but now I’m very keen to get my hands back in the soil again and I can’t wait to create a new beautiful space!

Online orders:

We are currently extremely busy exhibiting at the RHS Tatton Park and have therefore decided to close all metal work orders from the website for the time being to give us time to make stock for the shows.
