I'm new to this site and new to gardening.
My garden is south facing and about 6 x 18m in SW Wales. There is a small patio area at the top, then two more levels as the ground falls away. I have a small greenhouse and a small shed (hubby's), and most of the garden is taken up with lawn and a swing and trampoline.
This year I have decided to try some veg. I have started tomatoes, various lettuce, cucumber in the greenhouse and my cauliflower broad beens and carrots come in everynight for the time being. The peas look strong enough to stay out all night and my potatoes are in bags. My caulis and cabbages all failed after I transplanted them into bigger pots, so I planted more... fingers crossed!
I seem to have forgotten about the pretty stuff, so it is off to the garden centre for flowers for hanging baskets tomorrow
I am trying to grow as much as possible in pots or containers because I have no room for a veg patch. I will gratefully accept any tips or advice!
