    Hello,

    First post on this Forum.

    Im Mr Grinch (only sometimes). Im 36, been gardening since i had bought my own place in 2002.
    Im never happy with my garden, alway's tinkering. Project for the new year is a new patio partitioned from the lawn by Box.

    I love Roses, Aquilegia and Day Lilly's. I HATE conifers :rolleyespink:

    My garden is South East facing, i garden on heavy clay.

    I really dont know much about shrubs but i need to learn as i want some :)

    Nice to meet you all.

    G
    :D

      Mentioning that you like certain plants will get you in danger of being hijacked by the specialists and collector of those plants.....like Spruce:heehee:

          Welcome, Grinchy :dbgrtmb:

          If you like Aquilegia then you may want to visit our garden on Open Day :thumbsup:. We're not far from you and open for charity at the end of May each year. Much closer to the date I put an invitation on here for GC members.

          Here's a link to a preview I posted a few years ago.

          http://gardenerscorner.co.uk/forum/events/16432-sneak-preview-open-day.html

          and here's a link to a thread I posted about propagating and growing Aquilegias
