About me

I am 55 and enjoy doing the garden, but can only do a little at a time as I am in the need of a new knee. I grow flowers mainly And enjoy doing my hanging baskets and pots for the summer, I do grow some tomatoes in my little green house, but this coming year I am going to sow seeds and grow all my own flowers instead of buying them from the garden centre or car boot stalls.I need to add some height to my borders and am going to grow lupins, foxgloves, sunflowers,and of course my beddding plants when it is time and I want to add lots of different colours. I do have some perrenials growing but I am finding one of them a bit of a nuisance as it keeps spreading to much and digging the roots up is an awful job so when it has finished flowering this year I am going to spray and kill it off and rearrange my borders
