Joann's Profile

Where I live: Croagh, Co Limerick Member since: November 2008 Last here: 506 days 9 hours ago
About my garden: My garden is on a half acre site, very exposed but hoping to improve things with planting of hedges trees etc. Really heavy clay soil and alkaline but am trying to improve as I go by adding FYM, have loads in spring as luckily I am married to a dairy farmer. Garden has a southerly aspect so lots of potential. Did have nice mature escallonia hedge down both sides but our last two winters sorted that, have replaced it with mixed hedge mainly native with flowers and berries to attract wildlife. I particularly like bulbs, anykind really, I am always amazed how they can produce such beautiful flowers and then die back to a boring bulb again until next year. I am a little bit addicted to buying stuff on impulse so for my new year resolution I must try to just buy what I really want and what I know what will survive in my garden. I have had a lot of disasters over the years, lovely plants massacred in my garden!!
More about me: I have had an interest in gardening since as long as I can remember but its only since having my 2 kids and being at home from work that I have finally started getting a bit of shape into it. I have also done a few part time horticultural courses in the last few years so that has really ignited my passion. Recently got around to joining the flower and garden club in newcastle west so looking forward to those meetings.
