alex, My Garden (HA6)

Styles: Courtyards and small terraces, English cottage, Suburban, Wildlife

Soil drainage: Well-drained

Soil pH: Neutral

Light: Full Shade, Full Sun

Exposure: Sheltered

A fairly sheltered garden approx 8x8 metres with 6 foot fencing all round. I have neutral soil with unfortunate clumps of clay. I'm going for a cottage garden with deep beds around a square courtyard/patio. Got £000s worth of blocks for my patio for free by asking about the driveway at an old house that was being knocked down for flats ! I love colourful ceramic pots while I work out the right plants to put in with my evergreen shrubbery. Full length windows onto the garden mean I see it all the time which I love !!

About me
I'm pretty much a beginner although I've had my garden for several years ! I also admit to being a bit of a fair-weather gardener too but knowing what to do when with Shoot should help me improve.
