Badger's Profile

Where I live: Tourmakeady, Co Mayo Member since: June 2012 Last here: 490 days 21 hours ago
About my garden: Well, where do i start ? i have just started to develop the structure of the garden, paths, lawns, and planting some trees, there are very few plants in the garden as yet as i am carving the garden out of bog and hard rocky ground and therefore getting to know each area, i have 2.5 acres to play with so there will be many different themes, one which i have started is a Japanese style garden, and as i have a lovely stream, there will also be a bog garden, but all this will be developed slowly and on a budget that would not keep a mouse alive, so anybody who has spare plants or discarding or dividing up in the autumn can always dispose of them in my direction he he. Visits are welcome but this is a young garden and has many projects being developed.
More about me: Hi, i am an Englishman but been living in the Mayo area for 14 years, bought a piece of land and built my own house, i am a retired lecturer / instructor and i taught horticulture,forestry, conservation and countryside management, so i love anything natural, i look forward to talking to anybody about any aspect except religion and politics. I have many interests and hobbies besides gardening, d.i.y. model-making, walking, touring, seeing new places etc.
