    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 :)

                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.
