I saw your garden vid on YT earlier. It looks brilliant! Did you plant all that stuff yourself? I bought saw some marigolds, petunias and geraniums last weekend they all doing really well. Geraniums are great for stopping cats from pissing everywhere. This weekend I've weeding the driveway, cutting down bushes. Next week should be better cos I finally afford to buy hanging baskets. Gardening Rules!

That sounds like great fun. Its all still new to me I only started taking an interest in March and it just grew (no pun intended) from there. The problem I have is that it was and still is really over grown so there isn't much to plant stuff atm, hence me hacking down bushes and then there's very little money to spend on plants etc but I'm building it up now.

I'll do pics when it looks better, it'll probably be a while though.

No, its mostly concrete. It has a border though and the veg is in pots. I've had about 15 strawberries over the last few weeks. They've got loads more taste than the ones in the shop but are nowhere near as big.

No more veg or herbs this year cos I don't have a lot of time for it. Just gonna stick with the tomatoes and peppers. I'm gonna get more flowers too cos they're cheap and make the place look better. How about you?

They do surprisingly, mine are a bit small cos I left them to germinate for too long, but they are beginning to flower now. You can get European varieties that will even grow in Russia of all places. I know of people who grow them indoors and they have peppers all year round.
