I have just recently joined the GOY site and I would firstly like to thank all the people who have given me such a warm welcome and kind comments on my pictures.
I am still finding my way around the site but have been impressed enough to pass on the details to friends and relatives. I am sure in the coming months I will be asking for help and information in order to improve on my garden.
I use a fairly common sense approach to gardening, particularly to the creation and design. I first have the idea which is then drawn to paper, usually A3 size, then after several weeks of planning, re-drawing and re-planning I am in ready to start.
Now for the start of the Autumn work:
For instance, as previously mentioned, I have plans for the front of the west facing house which, apart from painting the front door a Cornflower blue, includes taking up the current shrubs and possibly laying stones with small paving slabs placed and spaced out, upon which I intend to put potted plants and shrubs. The scheme also includes a two seater garden bench. So far I have drawn up a loose plan and taken up the shrubs (which were struggling) and have started to level off the soil. So far so good….need to start looking at pots and plants……not in any hurry as long as it is ready by Spring next year.. will update as it happens.
I have a spot in the back garden which is about three foot deep and eight foot long and which following a suggestion from my daughter to grow lettuce may be dug over and a few vegetables grown….advice welcome
