New house, new garden, total newbie



  • There's a lot of wonderful advice here already.

    One extra idea though: get to know your neighbours, see what works in their gardens and, if possible, line yourself up for receiving some cuttings / seedlings etc of plants you particularly admire. It is all very well to read books - one of the great joys of having a garden is purposeful reading - but the gardener next door will have a better idea about local climate, soil and growing conditions. Don't reinvent the wheel until you're ready! image

  • Hi Dannybl,

    How are you getting on with your new garden? And where are you based? I'm a gardening TV researcher and am always interested in hearing people's stories.
