Mature woodland garden set on large corner plot includes oak, beech, conifers rhododendrons. Lawn and patios. Herbaceous and mixed shrub border. Greenhouse and veg plot. In conservation zone. Since we bought the house 3 years ago, have renovated overgrown borders and made a new veg plot. Took down the old greenhouse last year and replaced it. Grew loads of annuals and veg from seed and this year have treated myself to a heated propogater. Have ordered new roses, some to climb up obelisks and others for containers. Task this year is to make an asparagus bed and having a go at growing aubergines!

About me
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.

Biggest gardening frustrations
Lost my banana plant and bougainvillea to cold weather this winter. Both were in greenhouse wrapped up in bubble paper but alas, perished!
