What is the best way to recreate a garden with flowers and some sort of vegies?

Short lengths of sisal string can be unravelled and cut into short lengths to form stems. Dip the tips of a small bunch of the string fibres into PVA and then into various coloured scatter material to form flower heads, etc.

I believe that tiny pieces of Fimo clay can be fashioned into things such as cauliflowers or marrows, etc.

I hope this gives you some ideas.

Hi

I have long admired the County Gate layout in the UK - the owners have a fantastic website too - full of useful information and 'how to's'.  I doubt if you'll do better than looking here!!

Hope this helps.

Someone somewhere here did some cracking flowers using dried out/waste paint blobs as the coloured flower-head bit. It was so good I went out and rescued some jettisoned watercolour tubes I had thrown out.

That's a good site, worth adding to the Index I think.

I've got to agree Bob some of the flowers and grass on that site are amazing!

I am starting on some allotments and it will be a great help.

Thanks P.B.:thumbs

Ah, yes.
Poppies on Stu's War Memorial.

Dip cocktail stick (shaped at the end if you like) into paint leftovers.
Use to apply to foliage.
