About my garden: For three years in a row we had the problem of sheep invading our garden and believe me when I tell you, they leave nothing untouched. Our garden, unfortunately, is of a very heavy clay type so when it's wet it's impossible to do anything with it and when it's dry it's as hard as bell metal. We compost as much as we can and we try to improve each patch that we tackle by digging in as much compost as the old bones will permit. It's a long slow process but we're getting there. This year's project is quite large - we're going to create what we affectionately call a secret garden. We're going to erect a small wall around a rectangle area, incorporating a gazebo as a focal point in the centre. It's a large project so it will take most of the summer to complete.
More about me: Hi, Angela and I built our bungalow 7 years ago and when us two townies moved out here we barely knew the difference between a daisy and a dandelion so it has been a huge learning curve for us. We now both love being in the garden and spend most of our spare time there.
