Plants in Fi's garden
Very keen amateur. Enjoy reassessing every autumn, and moving around and redesigning in Spring! Have two ponds, a little wooded area, veggie plot and lots of herbaceous perennials and shrubs.
Biggest gardening accomplishments
Cutting out a compacted, mossy area, and laying stone and gravel seating area. Resiting new wildlife pond, and frogspawn within a week! Now hundreds of tadpoles!
Biggest gardening frustrations
Couch grass, brambles, weeds in gravel. Not being able to dig for longer than about 2 hours!
The gardening project I am currently working on
New veggie plot, and bench area to admire it!
