The aim of my garden diary is to share my passion for gardening with fellow gardening amateurs and to encourage aspiring gardeners to give it a go. I started gardening 5 years ago and have become a completely self taught gardener – and still learning a lot too! I have learnt most of my gardening skills through advice from friends and magazines; also by watching the Gardeners’ World TV programme on the BBC, but mostly by experiencing greatly! Through the regular posts in this diary I hope to demonstrate how growing your own vegetables or flowers can be such a truly satisfying experience.
In particular gardening has changed the way I live through the seasons, as I have come to appreciate the growing cycle of plants & vegetables and the eco-system which evolves throughout the year.
