Andy's potting shed
Hi everyone just stumbled upon your site and can honestly say its just what I’ve been looking for.
I’ve been growing all sorts all my life, love growing anything and everything. My nickname when I was ten was Percy (after percy thrower lol) so yes have been facinated with plants and trees for a long time.
Lately I’ve been ordering seeds thru Chiltern Seeds, and now live in a green house! My 8 year daughters used to having seed trays everywhere even in her room!!!
Can’t explain the delight, the joy i feel when a seed germinates and as for ordering seeds, when they come in the post its almost like Christmas. How sad is that…
Ok my garden this years been the best ever, as although I’m a dab hand at growing most things, designing a garden has always proved almost impossible for me.
It’s been more luck than judgment mind but some of the things I’ve grown are amazing, Fuschia’s, all manner of Daisies, Poppies by the hundreds, Gorse, Roses, Peppers, Pinks, Larkspur, Dalias the list could go on for ages.
When ordering seeds thru chiltern I go for a lottery mixture, these are seeds left over from packing into packets. The amount and range of flowers, shrubs, trees enclosed is fantastic. I’ve only just identified a small tree that popped up as a Paulownia tomentosa, gorgious tree known also as the princess tree or foxglove tree on account of the flowers.
