this is fantastic, thank you for sharing, do you have a pattern for the beehive and bumble bees. Don't want the hive that big and only want a few bees, but would love to make one for my great niece.

Wow I have never seen anything like this my entire life. Very creative, I wish I could see this in person.


I remember knitting a poppy for a knitted garden, which was just starting off, at a Brighton Knit & Stitch exhibition a few years back. Maybe it turned into this garden?


That's amazing....thank you for sharing


I saw a crocheted geranium at a friend's house and have been wanting to make my own ever since, but THIS is immense!


very nice beautiful from Israel

All this from a piece of humble yarn and very large dose of inspiration, time and talent.

I have been admiring the pictures of this Marvelous Knitted Garden since last year! I stumbled on the pictures I believe on Flickr. Oh WOW what an honor it must have been to see this absolutely stunning garden in person!


I'm speechless! You create in knitting what I do in paper--what a lovely garden you've cultivated!

I'd actually love to review these boxes on my shopping/lifestyle blog. i wonder if they'd send me a sample box to talk about?


Wow! How fantastic!


Absolutely GORGEOUS! I've popped back a couple times, but tonite I had more time for a leisurely stroll thru the garden. The aroma of the flowers nearly knocked me off my seat! Thanks so much for taking the time to post and share. xoxo

HI, Just been sent the link to your Blog -it is wonderful and thank you all for writing such lovely things about it.
I am the artist who organised this project with 1600 fantistic knitters - the youngest was 2 and the oldest was 99! Many of the knitters had disabilties including visual impairment, physical disability, learning disability and 42 groups took part.
The garden is on tour around the UK. It is at Poole at Lighthouse art centre until 15th October and then will go into hibernation for the winter and will be at Durlston Country Park, Swanage in Dorset next Easter, then a casle in Wales for a few months then a museum in Yorkshire. It is avaialbe to hire and i would love some bokkings for it for over this winter rather than have it in storage. Pauline Stanley 01202 392055


WOW, this is off the hook amazing and to think about the tons of work that went into it, whew, nice work at that!


Thank you Lucy for your fantastic blog and in showing the lovely photos of the Blooming Marvellous garden. I was fortunate to be one of the many who produced items for the garden (I made the tray of seedlings). We were all inspired by Pauline Stanley and her brilliant idea and enthusiasm. This is a travelling exhibition and if anyone would like it to come to their local area please ask your library/art venue to contact Pauline via the blog: http://bloomingmarvellous1.blogspot.com/
