Styles: Allotment or vegetable plot, Rural, Wildflower, Wildlife

Soil types: Clay

Soil drainage: Moisture-retentive

Light: Full Sun

Aspect: North, South, East

Exposure: Exposed

In the north East of Scotland, on an exposed and windy spot. The 'garden' was previously grazing land for animals, and is now full of builder's rubble and detritous. There is 1/4 acre to plan and develop. Probably small to some but enormous to a girl who previously had a 10m x 10m plot.... I planted a hedge along one boundary as wind protection. There is an established hedgs along another. I have much to learn about ths garden, and I'm looking forward to the challenge :)

About me
A full time occupational therapist, a part time student, and an even more part time gardener! I love being in the garden, and want to learn more. My approach to my garden at the moment is 'every plant for itself'! With no time to fuss and nurture, my plants need to be hardy and self sufficient....

Gardening expertise

Biggest gardening accomplishments
Transforming the garden at our previous home from a square patch of lawn to a 'romantic' flower filled garden. Not bad for a comlete beginner!

Biggest gardening frustrations
The trees I planted which have withered and died My husband's biggest frustration is that I keep moving plants around... never lost one, yet though...

The gardening project I am currently working on
We've just finished renovating our cottage and now it is the garden's turn! I have 1/4 acre of exposed garden in the Scottish country side to develop. With very little time & money to do so. I intend to beg, borrow, recycle and re use as much as possible
