Hate it!!! I cant keep anything alive. Dad is my gardener. He grows all sorts - including huge 7ft dahlias. They are gorgeous and the talk of the town. As for grass, we have a wee man Colin who is in charge of that. I just enjoy all their hard work hehehehe xx
I love it! I just dont get the chance to do it with an inquisitive 15month old toddling around! There is too much granite & too many steps around to let him completely loose whilst I do the gardening. Just had my Mum & Dad down & we all did it together & now it looks GREAT! Its one of only a few jobs where it instantly makes a difference & you can see you've done a good job x
hate it too tbh,i have a man comes twice a month to mow lawn and general tidy up. dont do flowers except in tubs and baskets but they are usually bought from shops etc but i do grow fruit and veg. This year i have lettuce, tomatoes, spring onions,strawberries, garden peas and carrots in the greenhouse. would love to do potatoes too but dont have the room for them at the moment. saves a fortune over the summer months and kids love growing, preparing and cooking the things we grow. xxxxxxxx
At the end of the summer we chose to visit Martinhal Beach Resort in Southern Portugal to see if the impressions forged on our last visit there were indeed as good as we thought. We weren't disappointed.
