Abbeybay's Profile

Where I live: Ballyshannon, Co Donegal Member since: August 2009 Last here: 2209 days 4 hours ago
About my garden: My garden is on a much higher level than the house. For a town garden it is fairly big and just a nice size for me. There are four big sycamore trees to the right hand side and while i like trees i find they block out a lot of light to the garden. I have put in two gardens and a veg patch and i am hoping to put in all flowers like lupins delphiniums etc at some stage in the near future if it ever drys up! What i have planted are flowering shrubs, roses and hedgeing and a small garden outside the back door. I badly need a shed up the back and I would love a greenhouse.
More about me: I've always had a love for the garden,have been told that i'm greenfingered and anything will grow for me. I love taking slips and watching them grow i find the whole process amazing. I moved into this house just two years ago and i had a lot of work to do with the outside space but i'm getting there. I took a lot of slips from my other home which was a big help and saving and i have all planted.
