My first ever garden!

Firstly... A huge thank you to everyone who has given info, advice & guidance over the last few months! For those who don't remember me, I moved to a new house last year, and gained my first ever garden. It was a blank canvas apart from some grass and 3 random pieris... Here it is this morning, in all it's glory! Modest and nothing compared to some, but I'm proud of my first efforts, and have properly got the gardening bug! All feedback gratefully received! (Ignore the rain and reseeded lawn patches!)

    That looks so lovely image  You've got some really good planting combinations there, good associations of colour, size and texture.  I hope you're very proud of yourself - you should be! image

    It's certainly worth all the effort when you can see such good results isn't it.  You must be very pleased with your colourful gardenimage

  • I really am proud! I know that compared to some of the magnificant gardens Ive seen on here, its tiny, but I have so enjoyed it. I can happily spend an entire day just pottering around the garden. It is so theraputic, and so rewarding when things actually grow! I remember posting that i had a terrible fear that nothing would grow and my new neighbours would laugh at all my efforts, but infact its been a great conversation starter, and Ive come to know several of my neighbours as a result. I think that the demise of the british front garden has probably contributed to the demise of 'community' as it was when I was small.......I digress

    anyway... next project.. autumn winter!!!
