I love this forum, I find I am learning so much about gardening.......soil, plants, weeds, pests, trees, fruit and vegetable growing (have yet to attempt). When I really got into gardening, rather than growing in pots, over the last 4/5 years, I have changed a lot in how I manage the garden. No more insecticide sprays , selective use of pellets (love my dahlias and lupins), I learned how to compost kitchen waste, I gather the fallen leaves for leaf mould, unbeknownst to myself I am morphing into an organic gardener. I no longer fill my pots and 14" wide borders with summer bedding plants.......my borders are now approx. 1 metre wide, planted with a wide variety of small trees, climbers and shrubs, perennials, biennials, and annuals mainly grown from seeds. I still have loads more to learn, my garden is not everyone's cup of tea, but it is mine and I love it. It is still a work in progress, but I think all gardens are really. Thanks to everyone on here for your shared knowledge and support.
