My back garden is east facing with a small shed on the left and a bigger one in the end of the garden. We moved into this mid-terraced house inheriting a lot of plants left behind by the former owner about a year ago. Some of them were left undernourished and we saved some of them from dying. We have added some new plants and flowers starting with petunia and viola.

About me
I've just started with a new interest in gardening this summer (2011). Buying new shoots from garden centres and growing them myself is really fun. One of the aims of my gardening is to decorate my front (west facing) and back gardens (east facing) and hopefully help beautify the neighbourhood. I live in Southwest London and my day job is in legal industry. Most of my gardening work is done in weekends while maintaining it is the early morning job before I go out to work. My son Eric also helps but he's newer in the field than me. My wife helps looking after all the indoor plants as well as some in the garden.
