Originally a Victorian farmhouse walled garden of about 1/4 acre & established around 1830. Now it is being developed for our own enjoyment & also our guests who stay in one of the two letting units on site. We are in a coastal location with beautiful views over to Point Lynas lighthouse. The garden has been expanded beyond the walled garden & includes a wildlife pond - and we may now further extend into one of the 2 paddocks that adjoin the house & garden! We are learning so any advice would be appreciated!

About me
Jane & Dave Sinnett are owners of "Holiday at Ynys Goch", a small self catering holiday business on the north coast of the beautiful Isle of Anglesey. The house is called "Ynys Goch", an old Victorian Welsh farmhouse with an original walled garden & two 1 acre paddocks. Jane is the gardener - Dave cuts the grass, hedges etc and works on various projects to enhance the experience for our guests and ourselves of course. We are learners but I do believe Jane has those magical 'greenfingers' and patience - thankfully!

Gardening expertise
Very Keen

Biggest gardening accomplishments
Setting up and establishing a greenhouse & Potting shed - 2011/12 Extending the walled garden with an Outer garden including a wildlife pond. Growing plants from seed - especially when the seeds have been collected from our own garden! Seeing the 'waste/excess plants' from the garden then re-growing in the fields or the local hedgerows after being 'transferred' there very casually.

Biggest gardening frustrations
Slugs, bad weather, damaged plants, the sheer volume of work on a large garden like this, weeds.

The gardening project I am currently working on
A Mediterranen garden area set against the west facing wall. It will have a water feature (lion's mouth) and we have just planted a vine courtesy of friends from Brittany.
