2011 update: lost the huge canary date palm this winter and two large cordylines (i'm gutted) despite protecting them. Planted alliums and tulips this year and trying our hand at peas and carrots too. Bamboo seems to be doing ok in pots too!
2010 - I have just started becoming interested in gardening and growing since we moved into a house with a south facing garden last summer. Its a relatively small garden, but it is very kind to me...
We have strawberries, a loganberry, two apple trees.. established when we moved in.. and I have planted a tayberry, gooseberry and redcurrant. Also garlic, potatoes and onions - as well as herbs (in a pot.!) ... and of course flowers. I have bought cheap bulbs/tubers from poundsaver shops (peacock orchids, dahlias, lillies) and everything is growing.. Because it has been such a joy..I am at risk of filling every space! I didn;t lose the canary palm and I transplanted bamboo and pulled up a tree of heaven(?) both very invasive, and I discovered 'round up'.. now its time to tidy up after the summer ;-(
