The Garden Community for Garden Lovers

A work in progress


Here is my shambles of a garden so far this year.
I have already done a few bits so it doesn’t look anywhere near as bad as last year although it still looks bad enough LOL

This is what we are naming cat and wildlife corner.
The cats love hiding in the grasses and the tiny pond is a have for wildlife and is currently full of tadpoles.

Climbing rose woohoo.
To the right will be covered in passion flowers if it comes back this year.
I haven’t seen anything there yet.

Strawberries survived the winter so are now in hanging tubs out of the cats reach LOL

Strawberry cuttings have taken really well and survived the winter.
The two cyprus were purchased for 50p each last year from homebase and have done really well considering they were brown when I bought them LOL
The little alpin was bought last week for £1.50 and I am attemtping to nurse it back to health and the cranesbill geranium (i think that’s what it is called) was £1 from homebase last year ( love their reductions LOL ). It was almost dead but seems to be doing well so far this year.

Next few are some of the potted plants I was given last year and bulb/tubers and pot I bought from poundland and planted this year.

This is cat/wildlife corner taken from my sons bedroom window.
Doesn’t look so bad from this angel LOL

If anyone is still reading and didn’t get bored thank you looking ROFL

I wasn't bored. You have such a lot of plants. They'll look great in the summer. I hope you show us more later on.

Thank you everyone.
Interesting is one way of putting it TT ROFLMAO
It won't be so bad once I know waht are weeds and what arent.
I have an awful lot of prickly stuff that is taking over a lot of areas but i've no idea whether to pull it all or not so i'm going to take some pics and post a question in a little while :O)
Of course I will post pics as everything comes into flower and progresses.
I'm going to need every ones help to name them LOL
I have already learnt so much from GOY's members and i've only been here 2 days ;O)

I think your wildlife and cat corner is great, and its so satisfying when you can take a lifeless looking plant and nurture it which goes to show you`ve got the touch. Really enjoyed your blog, good luck with the rest of your garden.
