Cranmore's Profile

Where I live: Galway City, Co Galway Member since: June 2010 Last here: 1194 days 19 hours ago
About my garden: I have a garden in Galway for the past 30 years. I am in my present garden in Galway City for the past fourteen years. I love colour in the garden so I grow lots of flowers, annuals, perennials, shrubs, roses any plant that has good colour. I grow a small amount of vegetables potatoes, courgettes, onions, lettuce and tomatoes. I have a large selection of herbs. I grew dahlias as a child in my home in Mayo and I still love to grow.
More about me: My name is Michael I am a very keen gardener. I enjoy the garden and spend some time there almost every day. I grow surfinias in window boxes, hanging baskets and tubs, I find Hot Pink, Purple, Lime and White give the best show, I tried many of the double varieties but they did not do well. I am trying a variety called candy wheel this year I will post a photograph later if they do well. I grow about 200 surfinias every year I just love the splash of colour see photos of window boxes and baskets.
