Daniel go to the little tree icon on your tool bar and then you can go to your photos, select the photo you want to use and upload it. It sometimes takes a while to upload ,be patient.

Summer house discussion

Posted: 29/12/2015 at 19:02

when we moved house it came with a summerhouse, what a waste of space!!!!!!!

we have now been in the house for over 10years now and this summer decided to change it to a potting shed. Bliss, should of done it ages ago.

we had electricity put in it and the jobs I can now do in there are endless,doesn't matter if it's raining I can keep on gardening.

Can anyone help identify these shrubs/bushes?

Hi j1 I think the main shrub at the top is a chosia and below that is hydrangea.

I don't think either is detrimental to the bungalow.
