first of I am so pleased to have found this wonderful site, its really inspiring to be able to join a community of fellow gardening nuts (my hubby does’nt share my plant passion I’m afraid) It’s a real privalege to be able to take a look into your gardens and to hopefully learn form your expertise.
well there’s not much gardening I can do now, we’re moving house in two weeks time and I’ve taken cuttings and dug up the few plants I can’t bear to leave behind (only a few which I’ve replaced with fillers , honest). Its going to be a major pain moving all my pots ,especially my tomatoes which have turned into 6ft giants!!
But I’ve been making plans and doing lots of research into potentail projects.
This will be my first garden that I can really get my teeth into as we hopefully plan to stay here for many years , my present garden is the size of a postage stamp and we rented before so I could’nt really change much.
We’ve only been here at our current house three years but I have transformed it from a square of grass with a dodgey fir tree to something much better I feel.But size is such a limiting factor.
I would love a knot garden with herbs,
a willow den for my young sons to play in,
a vertical green wall like they were showing at Chelsea,
A Japanese themed area,
a pergola or walkway with climbing plants to name but a few……..
I think I’m going to be busy over the next few years….
The garden I’m inheriting already has a large pond with wasterfall , a vegetable plot and a greenhouse ,plus lots of flower beds filled with perenial plants, but I did’nt manage to get a really close view to know specifically whats in there
, on the down side it has some huge sycamore trees at the bottom of the garden that will have to come down eventually I think.
anyway will keep you post and post some “before” pictures once we move in (if I can figure out how to add photo’s by then)
