Forum home The potting shed


Hi all, I have just joined the forum and thought it polite to say a quick hello.

My wife and I have recently moved to the most beautiful village but have gone from a mahoosive 100ft garden to a rather paltry 50 footer! the only good thing is the previous occupiers were absolutely tragic gardeners so there is a lawn and nothing else. BLANK CANVAS hurrah.

So far I have planted my himalayan birch, dug and planted my rose bed and found three yes three submerged patios at varying depths!

My rose bed is only 3m2 and I managed to get 15 full rubble sacks of gravel out of the thing. Cant wait to dig the pond!!

I will probably be needing lots of advice over the next few months, hence the need for the forum.

thanks for reading.

    Maybe the gravel was why only a lawn!  Valuable mineral resource is gravel, large areas of Dorset is dug over because of it.

  • Hi Wonky Legs image good for you finding the forum. I'm fairly new too they are a great bunch with loads of collective experience and knowledge

    I've just taken their advice and am buying an Azada to save my gardeners back .image sounds like your tasks could be heavyweight too.

    lots of hard work ahead but I can't wait to get the garden sorted, it's so naked at the moment!
