About me
Keen newbie, with an erratic approach often leading to unexpected results. Would like to learn more about garden planning so I can focus on growing the right plants for where I live. Local clay soil is proving a challenge.

Gardening expertise
Keen but Clueless

Biggest gardening accomplishments
Laying a new seed-grown lawn over an area originally dug up for garage foundations and riddled with hardcore.

Biggest gardening frustrations
Insects and poor soil

The gardening project I am currently working on
A work-around solution for the 2012 hose pipe ban.
