Every so often I feel a little lost with my garden - then I take time to watch nature and how the birds and insects, and now the amphibians too are enjoying it.  It's so much better than what's on the tv.

How to improve drainage

Hi Denno

I'd use an unglazed terracotta pot (old fashioned flower pot type) with a bit of broken pot over the hole in the bottom - then I'd mix 2 parts of John Innes No 3 loam-based compost with one part of horticultural grit.  

That should keep your marjoram happy.

Hi Nicole - congratulations on forthcoming baby   We'll do our best to give you some good advice but some of it will be to rest and put your feet up 

Can you take some pictures of the garden to give us a better idea of your options?

To post pics on here you need to click on the green tree icon on the toolbar at the top of where you type your post and follow the instructions - don't think it works from a phone - yet. 

Where are YOU?

Hi nin - I was born in Hitchin Herts, lived in Beds but parents moved us to Suffolk when I was 4 years old - all the rellies thought we might just as well have been moving to Outer Mongolia! Now they all want to move to East Anglia
