Plants Wendy wants
There are no plants in the wish list for this garden.
Live in a beautiful conservation area. Have loved gardening for years, trying my hand at growing plants and veg from seed. Moved into our home 3 years ago with a large garden that had been lacking in TLC. Soil was poor and borders overgrown with weeds, grass and rubble. Have spent many back breaking hours renovating borders and digging in tons of manure and compost, the garden has been transformed.
