A new garden for me, but on heavy clay..which is going to be a challenge after the beautiful soil of Lincolnshire. Small,south facing back garden and miserable patch of north facing muddy grass to the front. It belongs to the ugliest home I have ever had so remedial action to pretty up the bungalow is urgent. Most of the garden is grass, which will hopefully become a bee paradise with a few veg thrown in!
