Blog sounds fun
Excuse the spelling and grammar …….

How to start …..

A good place to catalouge all my daylilys .

I should of stated this 6 years ago when I arrived in my new house !!!!

Started the garden from scratch , the builders had layed a new lawn but just rotavated the soil and put the turf on top nothing else looked lovely but as soon as you walked on it you would sink !!!

I have done all the realy hard graft dug out all the borders two spades deep my garden backs on to a river so the stones that I removed you woudnt believe, the whole garden does get sun but like most gardens at diffrent times of the day so I have a shade side all my hostas and ferns and the other side all the perenials that like full sun .
The whole garden has fencing with heavy duty trellis and it goes all the way around and I realy like mixing climbers so have roses 6 types, jasmin 3 times , honey suckle 4 or 5 diffrent ones countless clematis, wisteria 3 types and they all fight it out amongst them selves through out the year and it suprises me now and again who pops up the winner as each year it does change .

enjoyed the blog and I have never fully catalogued all my plants. I find the plant list facility on here a big help.

That makes five of us in South and West Wales that I can think of. Wouldn't it be a good idea to be able to search for members from a particular area so we could find out who lives within visiting distance?
