Gardening information and Advice.

Gardening advice, help and  information. If you can't find the help, information or advice on the site, please let us know. 

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!

If you feel there is a subject that deserves more attention, please feel free to contact us.

We re-introduce the Flowertime Project  which had to be put on ice last year.

  • 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.
  • Osmosis - Essential to plant life - a non-scientific explanation
  • Shrubs
    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.

Whilst talking of shrubs, it may also be that you would like to visit our advice about trees section

  • Decking - Our newly laid out Decking section, to help you decide how to design and build a garden deck..

    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.
