My love of gardening didnt really come by choice. My parents have this huge garden and dad after retining early, spent every minute there, but when he got in his 80's all he could do was cut the grass with a ride on. It got to be like a wilderness, covered in brambles, conifer hedging out of control and a large patch of 7 or 8 full grown conifer trees shading the garden.
We dug out the trees in 2011 and i sowed seeds and planted up in 2012, this picture was summer 2013.
In 2010 we built an extension on the bungalow and i set too to try and hack it back.
This is a piccy of the part that had the large trees in. I dug it out and planted up in 2012/13,
