About me
I am a 45 year old newbie to serious gardening, i love the great outdoors camping, fishing,wildlife and nature, and would love to give somthing back by creating a garden haven that appreciates wildlife and at the same time gives me and my family somewhere to relax and appreciate the wildlife...

Gardening expertise

Biggest gardening accomplishments
Probably my biggest gardening accomplishment apart from discovering shoot, is catching the gardening bug and having the enthusiasm and the thirst for gardening knowledge in me, dont know where or when i got it but its here now and all of a sudden im looking forwards to all the different seasons with a mixture of exitement and inticipation..

Biggest gardening frustrations
My biggest gardening frustration apart from the Scottish weather is knowing what i want my garden to look like, but not having the knowledge to achieve it (yet)...

The gardening project I am currently working on
Just finished our pond and waterfall (Aug 2011) tis looking good i must admit.. Now for small decking area beside the pond to be used as a summer viewing area, think we should build decking first and then design bog garden around it,
