Where I live: Castlebridge, Co Wexford Member since: March 2009 Last here: 2882 days 11 hours ago
About my garden: The garden over looks the river Slaney and Wexford town so the garden is quite exposed to the southerly winds and we are still learning what plants like what position and soil type etc. The best leason I have learned was buying a mature acer from a garden centre which cost €80.00 and died two years later cause it did not like the soil ? We have a pond and we hope to create a river feature to run into the pond over the coming months. Last year we got a skip and cleared out some rubbish which was dumped in the bottom corner of the garden, which we planted with potatoes, carrots and onions which to my surprise not only came up but tasted fantastic, so we have planted more this year. Now if only we were as lucky getting a weed free lawn ..... The plant that I am most impressed with is the wisteria climber which we planted last year and this year its doing very well and I was told it never grew in the area before, It has not produced its lovely bule flowers yet....but atleast its not dead y
More about me: Hi my name is Colin and I am married to Sharon and we have two girls Ciara and Niamh and our dog snowy who gets better value out of the garden than we do. We are new to gardening but all ready we are hooked on seeing the plants growing and doing well in the garden
