Meet the PlantGrow Champion: Adam From View From the Potting Bench
Adam from @viewfromthepottingbench

It’s been a while since we welcomed another champion to the PlantGrow family, but we had to bring Adam from @viewfromthepottingbench on board!

The host of the Tales From The Potting Bench podcast, Adam chats with knowledgeable gardeners from across the community to share insights on herbs, TV gardening, allotments and more. Adam’s Instagram documents his family’s journey as they build their garden, and he’s even got an Etsy store selling beautiful garden-based artwork and cards!

Adam also penned the hashtag #HonestGardens – the idea that you should share your gardening failures as well as your successes. The gardening community uses it to proudly show off their plants and flowers and share their top tips, but also to show that gardening is tricky, and you won’t always get everything right.

We caught up with Adam to find out how he got into gardening and his top tips for growing successful plants.

“Gardening came to me from a young age through my mom and nan, but it’s only really as I’ve got older that I can start to appreciate it properly.

“We’re a family of four, so growing sensibly and ethically has always been at the front of my mind.”

Adam knows the importance of organic, peat-free products. “Peat-free compost has been the staple for us from the start and enriching that further is only a bonus! Our soil isn’t too bad where we are, but an extra bit of help with nutrients is no bad thing!”

As well as using peat free products, it’s important to Adam that he helps out bees and other pollinators in his garden too. “I’m really passionate about growing perennials that will come back every year better and better with some proper care and attention.

“But it does require some patience, I’ll tell you that – if you’re new to gardening then try to make time and sit and enjoy your efforts. Being patient and waiting for nature to take its course will give you a greater satisfaction in the end. Sometimes you just have to sit back and literally smell the roses!”

Why we’re championing Adam

We love that Adam is so passionate about sharing his gardening knowledge. His #HonestGardens approach fits in brilliantly with our ethos – gardening isn’t about getting perfect results all the time. Every time something goes wrong, you learn from it – and we aim to support gardeners of all ages and experiences as they find their feet in organic growing.
