WOW! What a bonus! What a garden to move to, at least you can sort the house out first, before you have to worry too much about the garden. My garden was an overgrown jungle when I moved in. If I ever move house, which I do not plan too, my garden would be like that for the next person. Good on your seller to have left you such a lovely garden.

Good on you, you come across as a lovely thoughtful and appreciative person, you deserve this beautiful garden. I look forward to seeing more of your beautiful garden. I am passionate about gardens and gardening.

I know it's so beautiful! The lady who lived here before us sadly passed away, so I am determined to try and look after her wonderful garden as it obviously meant a lot to her. Unfortunately I am a complete novice as at 21 I have only ever lived in student houses which rarely have a back yard never mind a garden! I'm planning on uploading some photos of some of the flowers and shrubs which I can't identify in the hope that someone can shed some light on what they are and what I should be doing with them so if you spot anything you can identify in any pictures I put up I'd be very grateful! Thank you for your lovely comment! Elle :)

Welcome to a wonderful life of gardening, and what a great start you have with what looks like a very private garden.

Thank you all so much for your lovely comments, I'd love to say I was proud but this was all someone else's work! I just hope I can look after it now!

Welcome to GOY. Your gardening life is beginning with a garden that's already looking pretty good - lucky you. I think you've found the right site for advice - lots of fantastic gardeners here. Hope you enjoy everything that awaits you in your new garden.

I said 'Welcome' somewhere else - but there's no harm in saying it again, is there? Of course you will look after it. You wouldn't have bought it if you didn't already know that!

Leave all the planting until you know what you've got, then you can start to make changes. There may well be bulbs and so on to come up! :-))

Thank you Bernieh and Spritzhenry! It's so nice how kind and friendly everyone is on GOY, I thought I would feel a little stupid with questions which may seem like gardening 101 to most but not at all - you are all so kind :)

I have done very little other than trying to maintain it Spritzhenry as everytime I think there is an empty bit some pretty new thing pops up and suprises me! We have taken one of the connifer type trees out near the back (not visable in this picture) as it was half dead and it had taken over a little bit and found hundreds of bulbs so not sure if anything will come of those but I tried to settle them all back in! my Nan thinks they may be Norians (I have no idea how to spell it but that's how she said it - although the thick black country accent may have effected it!) which she said are a little grassy and have pink flowers but I have no idea or whether the bulbs will still be ok.

Nerines, possibly? Are they in flower now? You are lucky. They're lovely!
