Valerie Littlewood, Val's New and Hopeful Garden (PE28)
Styles: Allotment or vegetable plot, Wildflower, Wildlife
Soil types: Clay
Soil drainage: Boggy damp conditions, Moisture-retentive
Soil pH: Acid
Light: Full Sun, Partial Shade
Aspect: North, South
Hardiness: Indoor unheated (H2), Hardy (H4)A new garden for me, but on heavy clay..which is going to be a challenge after the beautiful soil of Lincolnshire. Small,south facing back garden and miserable patch of north facing muddy grass to the front. It belongs to the ugliest home I have ever had so remedial action to pretty up the bungalow is urgent. Most of the garden is grass, which will hopefully become a bee paradise with a few veg thrown in!
