Mary123's Profile

Where I live: near Blarney, Co Cork Member since: March 2011 Last here: 2028 days 17 hours ago
About my garden: My front garden is south facing with a boundary of sycamore and hawthorn trees on one side and a long wall on the other. we have planted acers, laburnums birch, and liquidambers so far with camellias and rhododendrons to name but a few. The back garden is in two tiers and is a frost pocket as its surrounded either by hedges,houses or walls. We have a small pond which now has neither water or fish and is now under reconstruction thanks to a hungry heron with a sharp beak !!
More about me: Hi, i'm Mary, We moved here to our new house just over 2 years ago .and had a blank canvas of a garden to work with. I love gardening and esp. love roses and perennials. My interest started when my parents handed me flower and veg seeds and gardening tools during my school hols in first year ,a few years ago now to keep me occupied. Very quickly I discovered. that rabbits were going to be my No.1 enemy!! They ate everything in the veg patch. My flower seeds survived in the garden much to my satisfaction and that was it, I was hooked . Our six children are at various stages in their lives from age 10 to 22. Hubby does all the heavy duty work in the garden and I get the best job of all visiting garden centres and planting up the borders. I'm also a member of the local flower club.
