About my garden: Last year we sold our family home and are now facing into a new build situation.I cannot wait for the house to be at a stage where I can get stuck into the garden.My garden will be a mixture of all sorts, trees, shrubs, hedges, herbaceous and colour.I hope to iron out the mistakes I made in my last garden and make new ones of course. I'm saying this is my last garden and I'm allowing myself 10 years to complete if I can wait that long. I have a collection of specimen plants that I had collected over 30 years which I had been putting into large pots getting ready for the move. The best pots are the big plastic pots with handles so 2 people can lift them. I have also used dust bins as well. My garden will have all aspects to contend with from cool north to sunny south and I have plants collected for all locations.I love Japanese maples,magnolias and holly. My favorite planting in my last garden was a large lime free bed on north side of garden, incorporating Japanese maples,magnoli
More about me: I have been gardening as long as I can remember. Growing up on a small farm in Mayo we grew all our own vegetables mainly from seed. We had our own chickens,geese and ducks . I developed a passion for gardening then that has never left me. My garden has to be child,dog and of course bee and butterfly friendly. I have inherited from my parents that outdoor living and gardening is not just for when the sun shines but 12 months a year.
