Plants in Allison's garden
I love gardening. I've gardened since I was a child allowed to dig a couple of foot of the main border. I will try to grow just about anything either from seed or cuttings.
Biggest gardening accomplishments
Design, construction and development of the patio area next to house, which now includes two bay topiary spirals, a small pond and a wisteria covered pergola. ( I had some help from my husband with the building!)
Biggest gardening frustrations
The ground elder, bindweed and nettles that are integrated into every space
The gardening project I am currently working on
Reworking the long border down side of house
