The Garden Community for Garden Lovers

Hi everyone have just started to catch up with this lovely site and firstly i would like to say Hello and hope everyone had a lovely festive time and great new year. This site is fab i have been looking at some of the blogs and they are great.What amazes me is that even having not been on for some time everybody is so helpful and kind. I am having some difficulty working out how when i have entered my inbox how i reply to them other than private messages, please enlighten me if you could. I have some work ahead of me this year as i or should i say we my husband and i have taken on an allotment and as i have never done this before. I have already had some brilliant advice from Doctor Bob thankyou, well our plot is a 10 rod sized plot and when i saw it i thought maybe i have bitten off more than i can handle but no i will give it a really good go!!! Actually we are really keen to get started, we popped over a couple of weekends ago with forks in hand but alas returned with a couple of bent forks as the ground was frozen solid. Better luck next time. Also i am enrolling on a Horticultural course only part time as other commitments take up time, feels a bit strange going back to school at my age but my brain is eager to soak up all those facts and practical hands on skills just hope i am able to do it. I already garden for a few clients a few hours a week but my aim is to have a succesful business doing what we love the most (gardening ).

Good for you for taking the horticultural course. Its something I would like to do too but don't have the time right now. It is strange going back to school. I went back and completely changed careers when I was 44. uuuhhhh....make that 29 (for the 15th time). :o)
