Last year in January I bought some which were reduced in B&Q and planted in the garden and they grew great this year

Brand New Garden - 1 Year on

Posted: 22/09/2012 at 17:15

Thanks for the replies...I have created a small pond in one of the corners (done away with the veg patch), I agree I do not like the squareness of the lawn, next year I am going to change the shape of the borders to make them bigger and more curved.  The land behind the garden will not be built on which is good.  I have a few climbers growing on the fence, such as honeysuckle and a rambling rose.  The tree to the left is a variety of crabapple tree which is really nice as it has sort of copper foliage.

 I moved into a brand new house in January 2012 - and began to create my new garden as soon as I moved in.  I really like cottage style plants and hoping to make the garden even better next year and attract more wildlife - if anyone has any tips or ideas for me please share!! Thanks

 

The top picutre was taken exactly one year ago when the plot was reserved, and the last picture about 4 weeks ago.

Wildlife Pond

Posted: 08/09/2012 at 17:28

I have just created a wildlife pond in my garden  -1.5m x 1m (preformed pond) with the intention of attracting more wildlife into my garden.  I am looking for some advice on plants to put in my pond to keep the water clean that are not too invasive and attract wildlife, and also suggestions on plants to plant on the edge of my pond to cover the liner
