Gardening is no less popular now than it was ten years ago. What is
certain, is that gardening for most folks has changed. The changes have
come about in the main by a changing lifestyle - often with fewer hours
to spend on gardening, and of course because of the television coverage
of all manner of gardening events and subjects.
Gardening is going from strength to strength, and is a great hobby to
have - especially in these increasingly busy times. There is nothing
quite so satisfying as starting your plants off and seeing them reach
maturity - giving you a show of colour in what is becoming a stressful
life. Take time out for your garden. Your life will be fuller for it!

We re-introduce the Flowertime
Project which had to be put on ice last year. As part of
the project, we will be featuring a
Plant of the Day
- hopefully keeping it up to date.
Our expanding section contains
information about Ornamental
Grasses in the Garden. Grasses have become an important aspect of
many gardens. Look to find out why.
Grasses take on a new 'look' through autumn and early winter.
We have at long last started our section
about herbaceous perennials.
This is an invaluable group of garden plants and now is a good time
to be thinking forward to next year - and determine to plant some.
Flowering Bulbs in the Garden
The gardening year is starting so the next big 'gardening event' for
many, will be arrival of the spring
You might like to start looking at the catalogues and see what summer
flowering bulbs you can order. If you are impressed with your own - or
others' show of spring flowering bulbs, you might want to take bulb
planting a stage further with some summer flowering bulbs!
House Plants for the Winter.
Take your gardening indoors for the winter months by way of a
good selection of houseplants. Some
houseplants are very easy to grow and keep indoors - we give
you some ideas.
Foliage or flowers? The choice is yours.
Pruning. As we now start the run in to the
spring/summer months, many gardeners turn their thought to
not always the best time to prune. In fact it is rarely the best time to
prune. A quick guide on
when to prune shrubs
can be found within our pruning section. This will go a long way to help
you make the right decisions.
Our ever growing section about
will prove to be an valuable guide for those wishing to plant shrubs at
the best time of the year. Container grown shrubs can be planted at any
time - but with extra care needed if planted in the growing season.
Whilst talking of shrubs, it may also be that you would like to

Decking - Our newly laid out
Decking section, to help you decide how to design and build a garden
Bulbs in the Garden. Our new section about
bulb care and planting is an important
guide for this time of year. You will also be interested to see the
calendar of bulb flowering times that will enable you to have bulbs in
flower in your garden for every month in the year! Yes, it really is
possible, by including all manner of bulbs, tubers, rhizomes and corms.
Our target and mission statement if you like, is to keep ahead of the
changes and bring them to you on this website. We have many new feature sections in the pipeline and as always - we
will keep it seasonal. If you think that we are not covering your own
particular subject - or problems maybe -
then tell us
here. We will listen. We want to make this your site for gardening advice
