This week, I’ve been giving my desk area a bit of a spring clean. It’s been….under-used the last few months. Not because I haven’t been working, but because I’ve mainly been working from the comfort of my sofa where it’s warm and cosy.

Hearing whispers of actual sunshine this weekend, I found a little time to start working on clearing out all the stuff I’ve been dumping in my little garden office, and turning it back into a working environment. I’ve also been thinking about how I can add a little more life to the place, particularly after reading Penny Golightly’s new blog Golightly Gardens (an excellent thrifty gardening blog).

Green living

When this indoor allotment (£24.99 from MenKind) popped up in my inbox, I couldn’t resist. Small enough to keep on your desk, but big enough to grow three types of herbs – Coriander, Basil and Oregano.

If you prefer something a little more temporary, you might want to hop on over to Postcarden. They do a wide selection of mini gardens that arrive in the post, you guessed it, in postcard form. I’m a sucker for the village cottage version.

Are you giving your desk or office area a spring clean? What detail are you lusting after?
