I love my garden


I love to gardening and I am still a beginer of gardening and I dont know the name of the plant and cant even say the name but i try and remember the common names that the plants are called.

I try to change the style of my garden and change the way it looks each year. my garden is small and my front garden is the same. at the monment I am cutting more of the grass away and creating more boarder so i can fit more plants in the garden.

I love buying plants for my garden but they have to catch my eye. My front garden is part shady so i am trying to buy the right one so they can grow.

You probably know more of the Latin names than you think you do - rhododendron, hosta, narcissus, chrysanthemum, geranium, crocus to mention a few. If you only learn two new names a month, you will still know 25 more by the end of a year. Planting with your conditions is always a god idea - your plants will be happier and you will be happier with your garden. Enjoy!

Hallo - we are all learning all the time about what will and won't grow in our own gardens and conditions. My local Garden Centre has a section signed ' Shady plants'. You could look in yours and find plants that take your fancy and be pretty sure they'd grow OK. One of our members recommends a visit to the Garden Centre each month, to see what's in flower and then you get something in flower all the year round! You don't have to know their names to do that, either. Happy gardening!
