Why did you all start gardening?

Posted: 31/12/2012 at 07:11

When our boys were young we started growing veggies but had a boring garden of just a few shrubs and grass for the boys to play on. Then about 35 years ago my Hubby built me my first greenhouse and the bug well and truly bit me- I now have 3 greenhouses which I love  Our garden has just evolved - we both enjoy it (or obsessed may be a better word ) We entered a few gardening competitions and people used to say "why don't you open your garden so more people can enjoy it"

So  one day a few years ago I got in touch with the NGS and we have opened 5 times now and are opening again in 2013 all being well

what are these insects?

Hello Tamsin  I think they are some sort of  aphid casings- aphids suck sap from the leaves so would make the leaves look unhealthy

Good Morning Everyone


I love all your trees and deccies  and really enjoyed seeing them - thankyou for sharing

I made my door hanging yesterday - looks the same most years as I use the same bits and bobs

Last night we went to  our Grandaughter's school Christmas concert - it was wonderful  Georgie is 15 and plays the flute - she has just passed her grade 4 exams

I am going to Sainsburys in a few minutes - shouldn't be busy this time of the morning

Have a lovely day
