About my garden: The site is large - very exposed to wind and wet in some parts. We have put a lot of effort into getting hedges established to create shelter. We are concentrating on developing the garden around the house and the rest of the site is just lawn. We were in the house about a year before I turned my attention to the garden. My first attempt to establish some beds was a complete disaster as I didn't realise the field our house was built on was known locally as the rabbit field. They eat everything including the roots of some plants. Roses and lavender appear to be some of their favorites. There were two options give up gardening or keep them out. It took another year to get a rabbit proof fence in (they will make holes in it if they can). My husband also sourced liquid fence which also helped. We are more or less rabitt free at the moment but you have to keep on the look out for the tell tail signs!
More about me: This is my third garden and most challenging .
