About me:I recently became interested in Gardening only back in September 2011. I needed a new hobby as i had a lot of spare time on my hands due to job loss through illness.I enjoy being out doors and see a garden as another room especially in the summer,I already made a start when we moved into the property in June 2010 by building a large koi pond (block/raised built),The garden was a mess of overgrown grass and weeds on top of heavy waterlogged clay so i never bothered with it until June last year. Since then i have dug up ALL the turf 30m sq of it and made lots of raised beds,stone path ways and planted 5 fruit trees and various soft fruits and a few veg patches. Made some plant borders again all raised due to waterlogged ground where i have made a start with planting new shrubs evergreen and decidious which are maturing well a few Perennial etc but still not finished with planting up as yet as still in the planning stage.Im proudly getting there but is a long slow process,especially as i dont have experience in gardening apart from what i red in Gardeners worl magazine amongst others and the series on tele,ive learnt a lot from them and books and still learning now..The main thing is i ebjoy it so much and will find any excuse to go out and walk around the garden planning in my mind what to do next...
more coming soon...
