Periwinkle's Profile

Where I live: Donegal, Co Donegal Member since: February 2009 Last here: 257 days 17 hours ago
About my garden: I garden on quite an exposed site overlooking Donegal Bay and have herbacious and shrub borders. Being near the sea, the garden didn't get much frost until the 2008/2009 and 2010/2011 winters when we suffered along with everyone else!and lost several plants.The soil, particularly in a new area that I'm developing, is heavy clay with very poor drainage so that is a challenge!
More about me: I'm a member of our local Garden Society and part of Donegal Garden Trail and as part of that have my garden open during the third weekend in June.
