Forum home The potting shed

Hello and General Noob Chat

Hi everyone,

I'm pretty new to the forum but been using this site for lots of my gardening ideas and projects for a while now and love it! (Thanks GW image ) My first post was an ID request- and I'm sure I'll be posting many more of them- and it was answered very quickly by some very lovely and helpful people - so the forum's looking good too so far image  

I'd describe my self as an amateur gardener and I've tried a few different things with my wee patch and have always got my eye out for something else I fancy. Yup, greedy guts. So I'm planning to update my profile with more info about location and aspect and what I'm working with etc, and hopefully bring together a whole bunch of these notes that are cluttering up my desk - and brain.

What I'd like to ask is 'wur aboots' on the forum I might post a bit of an overview, maybe with some pics if I'm feeling brave, and put it out there for general advice on design, plant choice and care and especially low budget, high impact  things I might do straight away? 

All chat welcome and cheers for reading.

    Hi siamcat - there's a Garden Gallery thread for posting general  pix of our own gardens, and if you look at the forum topics you'll see a general list of places to put different threads. For instance, you mention design, so you could put any questions under the Design heading. You'll see threads with titles like 'what can I put in a shady border by a garage?', so you might just put that under Plants.  

    That said, you'll find if you just ask have a query about something, it won't really matter where you put it, as long as the heading is clear enough!  image

    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    I live in west central Scotland - not where that photo is...

    Hi thesiamcat, welcome to the board and hope you find everyone as welcoming and helpful as I have.  It's a great place for advice, although being a newbie I'm not very good with advice at the moment but happy to chat and ask for advice image
