I'm a complete novice to gardening and my garden is a 'work in progress' project which I started 2 years ago. It was a blank canvas being an old tennis court. I share it with my husband who did have half for growing fruit and vegetables, but I'm slowly taking over! I have a lawned area with herbaceous perennial borders. I just plant things that I like and will correct colour and schemes as I go along!

About me
I'm new to the gardening scene. My children are now grown up and don't need me as they once did, so I now have time to pursue new hobbies and interests of which I've found gardening to be one of them. I find it a great way to unwind and de-stress and spend as much time as I can pottering! I don't profess to know that much about the subject, I just know I love pretty gardens and am 2 years into creating my own pretty garden; making lots of mistakes as I go and would probably make a professional gardener cry with my colour schemes and layouts. But I'm enjoying myself and will put right my wrongs as I go along. So anyone who wants to offer constructive criticism feel free, I'll be happy to listen!
