    Hi all

    I'm new to the site (and new to gardening in general to be honest as I have just moved in to my first house).

    I have a smallish, east facing garden in the Midlands that has been quite neglected, I am trying to bring it back to life with mainly potted plants. I did attempt to re-plant my Christmas tree with poor results so any advice is welcome!

    Looking forward to meeting some green fingered gardeners on here

        Hello @Centime :sign0016: to GC and nice to have you with us [​IMG]

        You'll get all the help you need from members as there's some very knowledgeable members regarding flowers / planting etc and some members have astounding gardens with such good colour mixture.

        You've got a nice little plot there and with it having a lawn you can work around :)

          Hi @Centime i'm also adding this forum discussion from page 1 on here and there's numerous plants members have added which may also catch your eye for your garden and if so just ask members about them also :)

          WHAT'S LOOKING GOOD IN JUNE 2018

                Hi Luciusmaximus, for the moment I've settled for getting it nice and tidy but I'm searching for inspiration and I'm finding some great tips on the forum that @Gail_68 suggested. I do have a lot of bare fence on one side so am thinking about some climbers.
