Hi Jean,

 thanks for your message

Yes i do love it up here ..my dream place was Cornwall!!!! ( maybe i need a new husband..as we moved up here for his new job.

Just thought i would let you know i live in Noss (by Spiggie Loch) in the South of Shetland so its kind of greener,

If you ever come back just let me know and if you need somewhere for a coffee break your very welcome..( i'm now going to get people knocking on my door asking for a coffee) lol

Well i found a great seed selling site online as with no days out shopping up here my pocket money was spent on seeds   

The weather has been lovely over the weekend and its said to be a good week so i was out at 6.30am this morning cutting the lawn and i have just come in for a coffee break after potting..( a great gardeners word " potting" more like getting a break from the kids or husband lol )

I think it would be a great idea if gardeners world used my garden as a new garden show  i think i would like to sit and watch as they did the work..hehe

anyway off to walk the dogs down on the beach,

hope your enjoying the weather

Hi all,

Just a up date on my garden and how my plants are doing,

Most plants seemed to be finding they roots after <span>their big move, the weather had not been to bad ...<span>until last weekend we had heavy rain with very strong winds

As we live on top of a cliff the sea salt hit the new shoots hard and sad to say my plants are now looking sad.

But fingers crossed some will make it

I have been watching gardens world and <span><span>Beechgrove garden

I have decided to buy larger plants to give them a helping hand and trying some seeds to try help with the cost of things,

I have borrowed some books on coastal gardening but most are sand based soil and i have wet peat!!!

does anyone know if "Gardens World" have done a <span>programme about gardening in Shetland if not maybe they would like to i have a garden they could use LOL

okay off to pot up some seeds

thank you for reading and i will keep you posted

Hi

I have just moved to Shetland from the Midlands,

I have brought my plants from my old garden to see if they will live ...(you know the old 50-50 chance live or die)

but was wondering if anyone know what plants will grow well up here,

I'm also buying a small poly tunnel and was going to try and grow some dwarf fruit trees in it also some raspberries...does anyone know if i can do this

Many thanks for you time in reading and for any help

Hezzie.
