My quest to become a Gardner begins LOL Have bought my wellies and am ea...


Cutting down all unwanted Conifers ie 15 done
Making child friendly areas attempted!!!
Grass seed down on what used to be a lovely lawn before my 3 young girls destroyed it LOL – done
Ugly bushes and brambles chopped down
re-shaped lawn done
Paths made and gravel down done
New corner seat put in and painted a lovely Med Blue

Am so proud of myself so far its taken me 4 weeks to do the above and I’ve done it all by myself yipeee barring my hubbing digging out the confier roots etc

Now the fun begins where do I start!!! Help not a clue as to what will grow or what to buy – photos will follow tomorrow – anyone who has any advice and ideas once they see the garden as is at present would be greatly appreciated.

Well done - and welcome to GOY, havewelliescanlearn. I don't think I'll be calling you that, though - it takes too long to type! lol.

Yes, photos would be good - we'll be able to take a look and see if we can make any suggestions. In the meantime, have a browse through other members' gardens - and see if you get any inspiration.

Welcome to goy.
Your enthusiasm knows no bounds, I feel drained just reading about all you`ve accomplished in just 4 weeks.
As Spritz suggests you can get a lot of inspiration looking through other members photo`s.
Good luck with your project.

Welcome to GoY.
Another way to get ideas is to visit a few open gardens in the Yellow Book scheme welllies. There are even some of our GoY members that have their gardens open for the yellow book.
