Suprise suprise!


Just had a quick scan of the front garden and was delighted to see shoots coming up in all kinds of places. This is the excitement of moving into a new house with a garden, I have no idea what will pop up next. I have had the big fir trees removed and now the sun pours across the lawn (when it comes out) rather than being in the dark constantly. My next door neighbours are just as pleased as I was to see them go.

I had the same experience when my neighbours moved couple of years ago, he had planted leylandii all up the edge of the garden took all the light and moisture out of my soil, i hated them, then they moved and the very nice people who moved in took them all out!! what a difference, they even went halves on the new fence, although not gardeners and i have to keep cutting down brambles sneaking through and over i am so happy the leylandii have gone i can forgive them!!

After moving to a new home, it's so exciting finding bulbs and perennials which appear as a surprise.

Welcome to GoY. Enjoy :o)

You are right to wait and see what comes up, 4d, we did that when we moved here, left everything the same until the late autumn. It does help - you would be so disappointed to dig out a real gem!

Glad to hear that you removed those conifers, though! Well done. :-)

Welcome to GOY from me.

I'm glad you got rid of those shady trees. It's horrible to have your garden in shade on a lovely sunny day.
I hope you find lots of interesting things in your new garden.
