Gardening challenges for 2015

Anyone planning anything  specific?

In the past I've specialised in growing roses & sweet peas,.......this year I'm going to attempt to grow those gorgeous incurve chrysanths. I know the basics and I know it will be a faff, but looking forward to the challenge.




  • Hoping that my new Rose garden blooms beautifully despite a few misgivings about my choices from helpful 'experts' (not from the Forum btw), fingers crossed. They are going to get so much TLC what could possibly go wrong? image

    Next year is going to be one of the most challenging of my eighty or so years of gardening.  Bristol where I garden is next year's Green Capital of Europe so each day i will try to be as ecologically friendly as I possibly can to help.  I will start a new thread so will appreciate all the help I can get from you all.

    My specific thing for 2015 is to get some hard landscaping down - but also have lots of native flower seeds. Going to try them out in various pots and containers just to see what results are possible, bit of a diversion from the the second year of growing veg, which will no doubt dominate most of the time in spring at least.

    Good luck Pauline image

    Growing potatoes in an old compost sack is also pretty rewardingimage
