Hi there. I'm a lifelong (longer than I care to believe) gardener in Mid Wales. We have been in our current place for 20 years and it is the most challenging garden I have had. We are at about 700' but down in a hollow so lack morning and evening sun. Anything that grows here needs to tolerate clay soil, much shade and excessive wet. 2017 it started raining a week before the end of July and by Christmas we had only had 15 completely dry days! My garden is about 50m x 15m and is bounded by a river on the long side and surrounded by woodland and farmland (our own). We have no neighbours. I have one large, difficult to tame flower patch, raised beds for veg and soft fruit and a 14'x8' greenhouse. 2 years ago I managed to put up a 30' x 14' polytunnel behind a sheep shed in a field (water from the shed roof) and that has completely transformed my growing - I'm still experimenting there. I look forward to sharing some gardening chat with like minded people.
