Further Gardening help sections are on the way, so please bookmark this page and come back. We will not disappoint you with our expertly written gardening features full of useful advice and information.
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!
Ornamental Grasses Our latest section contains information about Ornamental Grasses in the Garden. Grasses have become an important aspect of many gardens. Look to find out why.
Pruning. As we now start the run in to the spring/summer months, many gardeners turn their thought to pruning shrubs. It is 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.
At long last, I have got round to starting a section dedicated to Perennials. It has been side-line for far too long. Why I do not know, for perennials - along with shrubs - are my favourite ornamental gardening subjects.
Mahonia x Media Underway in the image above give some idea as to how useful shrubs are - even at this time of year - regardless of weather!
Our ever growing section about shrubs, 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.
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 and information.
