    Hi all

    I've actually been a member/browser for a long time absorbing everyone's help, advice and enjoying shared photos but never posted. I'm looking for some advice for which I'll start a post for but wanted to introduce myself first so..

    I'm late 20s with one almost 2 year old son and another son due in July. I was never interested in gardening until me and my wife bought our house in 2013. Since then my passion in lawn manicuring, flowers, veg and herb growing has increased massively. I haven't had as much time recently as I'd like to care for the garden with a young family.

    When I get chance I'll consolidate my garden photos and share a link to them although don't get too excited they're nothing special

                  Welcome to the forum @SteveF ! Where are you located? I need to know because if you're in a zone like mine, I can share snow shovelling techniques :)
