About my garden: Our garden is about half an acre and we have mostly put it into shrub beds and walkways. It takes a little work each week which we both enjoy. I love the garden when it is full of colour. I have tried to obtain some unusual plants and particularly love my little mouse plant, can't remember its latin name. I am not very knowledgeable about plant names, I just know the names of the most common ones found in most gardens. Like everyone else our garden is a work in progress.
More about me: My name is Marian and together with my hubby Brendan we have developed a great love of gardening . I knew nothing about gardening when I first got married many years ago. I learned by watching gardening programmes on TV and reading gardening books. It is true that when the gardening bug bites you that you are hooked for life. My husband does all the hard work and I do the designing and buying of the plants, I enjoy creating different areas in the garden. I am looking forward to getting ideas from other gardener's on this wonderful website.
