About me

I live in Gloucestershire, and have a new (to me) garden of a decent size but with nothing in it to speak of- yet!
I love gardening but have been waiting for a garden bigger than a postage stamp for the last few years to get stuck into properly. I'm really keen to grow my own veggies for the first time and am looking into getting a greenhouse and doing some propogation.
I've just got hold of some old railway sleepers and have made a veg patch (trying to protect it from my two lively kids!) and am hoping to fill my new borders with my favourite hellebores, perennial geraniums and dahlias.
Have decided to try going along to a meeting of the Hardy Plant Soc at the end of the month. Will let you know how it goes...
I'd love to hear from anyone, whether in my area or not.....
