KG did you not do Geoffs freebie seeds?
Did he have some Sweet Olive seeds?
I love Inka's garden and she has promised to let me live on her verandah
I live at the Sussex seaside and am never sure how big my garden is because I have never measured it. It is a bit wider than my house. The front is open plan so I have taken over the bit on the other side of my driveway. The housing association don't appear to mind that I keep it mowed and have planted a number of shrubs on it.
It was all lawn when I moved here 11 years ago but I have slowly been digging up more and more of it. There is a veg plot at the end and lots of pots all over the place. I grow a lot of cottage garden type plants and like dividing stuff up and taking cuttings to get more free plants. My patio is a bit difficult to negotiate because I have lots of pots (currently mainly strawberries) and various things have self seeded in the gaps between the paving stones (chamomile, tangerine dream poppies, lemon balm and pulmonaria). I have two apple trees in the back garden and roses in the front garden. My soil is very light and sandy so I bung lots of home made compost on it at every opportunity.
