                    Thanks for the welcome everyone, just a little more to add, I've always had a garden but mainly tried to grow plants, shrubs trees for wildlife (I think most gardeners have an affinity with nature) the garden I have now is mostly hard landscaped so I grow a lot in containers, I have a good variety of birds coming into the garden which I adore, looking to cater for bees and butterflies more, finally got my first ever greenhouse up and running this may so I've ordered a fair few seeds to begin next year, mainly agastache and verbena varities look forward to chatting and sharing with you all. Thanks Neil

                        Used to have one Tetters, decided to fill it in when the grandkids came along unfortunately, I have 4 of them. I was lucky enough to get 40 lavender hidcote plug plants for the cost of postage earlier this year I'm currently growing them on, will take a few pics soon and post the.

                          Mazambo, a lavendar hedge is a wonderful addition to the garden. A couple of lavendar hedges here and the scent was wonderful esp when in full flower. Those plugs will grow fast :)
