Where I live: Centre of the Universe - People's Rebublic, Co Cork Member since: May 2010 Last here: 975 days 1 hour ago
About my garden: We renovated and extended a house and moved in in 2008. The gardens had been used as building storage/compound and so I have been slowly working on different elements of the garden. The beds still look sparse as I do not want to fill them with what might turn out to be wrong. I do like striking plants and did possibly go OTT with bulbs - Alliums, Frittalarias and Arum Draculus. When in colour, great but when died back, not so great Have to complete the bed at the very back of the garden and then fill in the gaps between the bulbs and other shrubs. Also trying to grow tomatos and herbs but not very successfully to date.
More about me: Late coming to enjoying gardedning but now appreciating the therepautic value of job satisfaction in the garden - if not necessarily appreciating the sore back.
