Just to say hello to everyone,
I started gardening about 4 years ago and now it's my main hobby .
I have a lot to learn as I've lost quite a few plants in the 4 years.The site was empty when we moved and took 50 lorry loads of topsoil so I had a blank canvas and no talent Embarassed But I'm learning slowly but surely,My garden is about 300 foot /200 foot with house in center.I have a lot going on at the moment but cant wait to check out all the posts,
Regards to all, K.

always a risk bringing in top soil, risk of it being sub soil , too heavy or too light with risk of carrying pests and disease also. Allow the soil to settle and start with a small section and work out from there. don't try to accomplish too much in one year and don't be discouraged with failures. keep at it and keep records of what you do learn by your mistakes and your achievements
