Development of my small urban back garden (12m long and 4m - 5.5 m wide), a couple of miles from Sheffield city centre. It was just grass and leylandii when we moved in (March 2013) and over time I'm turning it into a small kitchen garden with raised beds for vegetables, along with borders for perennials and herbs and some fruit trees. My design is based on using permaculture principles. Visit my blog to see the latest developments: http://www.gwenfarsgarden.info/

About me
I see myself as a very keen amateur gardener and permaculture practitioner. I have a fondness for red and purple vegetables and flowers. I like to grow heritage varieties and I'm learning to save my own seed. I have ME (a chronic illness) so my gardening can be a bit slow at times, but it gives me so much happiness that I just couldn't ever give it up. See 'about me' on my blog: http://www.gwenfarsgarden.info/2009/11/about-me-and-blog.html

Gardening expertise
Very Keen

Biggest gardening frustrations
Trying to garden whilst having M.E., which means I'm not always well enough to garden, so I spend a lot of time thinking about it when I'm not doing it.

The gardening project I am currently working on
My current project is my back garden which is 12m long and 4m - 5.5 m wide. When we moved in it was just grass and leylandii, a baren landscape with no wildlife. My aim has been to turn it into a small kitchen garden, with perennial borders and fruit trees, using permaculture principals.
