    My name is Carl and I live in Lancashire, although I'm originally from Kent, they all think I'm kind of posh around here and come from some sort of country estate whereas I think I sound more like Del Boy =p

    Anyway, I'm brand new to gardening and I have managed to grow my first plants; some petit pois peas, some morning glories and some rosemary which take ages to grow and are all still very young looking.

    I just want to gain some gardening experience so that I can recognize the stages of plant life and how to care for them properly so that I know I could grow any range of plants if I wanted to. Objective: Blueberries

    I don't have my own garden at the moment since I am living with my mum in law waiting for my business to pick up, so I'm growing my plants in pots which I know is kind of risky and I've signed up on here to learn more and get some advice!

                  Hi Carl

                  :sign0016:

                  Welcome to Gardeners Corner :)

                  I grow everything in pots and containers as I have no garden at all, just a small gravelled yard. Don't let it put you off I grow everything from ornamentals ( flowers , dwarf trees etc ) right through to fruit ( Cherrys, Plums, Blackberrys ).

                  Container gardening is wonderful, you can control what happens, and move things around if you want to.

                  Good Luck :)
