Hello, I'm new here!
Hello all, Just thought I would introduce myself as I'm about to bombard the forums with, no doubt, stupid questions!
I love gardening and being at one with the soil and the outdoors. My mum was the gardener and took care of our gardens at the family home, the neighbours gardens, an allotment and even the councils verges outside the house! They were certainly the best kept verges around! She also helped with the garden in my first house and we got them looking great. Unfortunately, my mum passed away 3 years ago aged 59, from cancer. I miss her terribly. In honour of my mum I want to continue with my hobby of gardening but I no longer have her 'know how' and plant knowledge to call on, hence why I've joined this forum.
I'm hoping you will be able to assist me in transforming the current gardens in a home I share with my husband and 12 week old son. We've lived here nearly 10 months but haven't been able to tackle the gardens much due to being pregnant and suffering from a bad pelvis!
The previous owners of the house didn't enjoy gardening at all and allowed the conifers to overgrow and the weeds to run free.
I'm hoping you'll all be gentle on me with my very novice posts! Thanks in advance!
