The three growbags, left to right, Elaine the Latin freak; Laura the scientific one and Caroline tagging along to stop them getting too technical.

Thank you so much for following our blog. We’re three unremarkable sisters who like to laugh and love gardening.

Big sister Elaine Fraser Gausden is a classics teacher (you just knew she was a teacher right?) has a small garden in Eastbourne, East Sussex and whenever she can, battles across the Channel to Normandy where she’s tamed literally half a field belonging to the Normandy farmhouse which she and husband Nigel bought in 2006.

Middle sister Laura Warren has lived all her life in West Sussex (apart from doing a science degree at Cambridge – the source of her intellectual snobbery) and there she and her farming husband Tim have an eccentrically English garden which accommodates the bad behaviour of their seven dogs (yes seven). Whenever they can they battle up to the Hebridean island of Islay where their extended family has a farm on its west coast.

Little sister Caroline Rham went to the University of Life and entered the frequently disgraced profession of journalism. She lives with husband Mike in East Lothian, Scotland, on  the very shores of the North Sea. Whenever they can they battle up to Strathpeffer in the Highlands where Caroline previously spent 20 years living and gardening, and they are now building a new home.

All three of us have enjoyed juggling jobs with bringing up children and weathering life’s triumphs and tragedies individually and together. Our parents were keen gardeners and we’ve all inherited their enjoyment of seeing things grow. Armed with the odd glass and a bit of sibling rivalry our horticultural bond is a never ending source of joy – thank you so much for reading our blog.
