I was actually a little surprised to not find a thread on this considering the diversity on this website. So here it is...

I'm just getting into this on a fairly mild level and hope to learn from some of you.

Any enthusiastic gardeners out there?

I like to screw over plants (not sexually) by stamping on them. Perfect for nagging weeds.

To be honest - no.  That's my concise and totally useless response.

I do a bit, Mark.
Can't talk now, but post what you want advice on and I'll reply later.

Nothing specific right now... just think there should be a thread for discussion.

What does everything think is the most beautiful outdoor all season plant?

Oh yes.    I now only have a tiny garden but I love it.    I go into the garden and the world goes away.

That is very difficult.    It will have to be evergreen so maybe a  rhododendron or  a camellia- depends on your soil though.

Love gardening thumb up or rather growing flowers and veggies, am eating home grown brocclli at the mo., yum Smile
Best all rounder would have to be a small tree which has lovely flowers, gorgeous foliage then lovely fruits that birdies love, a crab apple perhaps? In a small garden plants that give good value are a must eg repeat flowering rose.
@amabritt
cottage gardens are my favourite too, you are going to be envious but have daffs, violets and primroses out at the mo and crocuses trying. Smile But love Bourganvilia - such showy, gorgeous flowers. Have seen them growing outside on the I. of Wight, the climate is so mild.

I'm doing something that is apparently frowned upon in the gardening circles which is growing trees in containers such as the Norway Spruce and Fraser Fir which are meant to grow huge.

I wanted a small privacy wall 2-3 meters high that could handle strong winds, and saw those trees reduced from £30 to £2.50 each so bought a few for that purpose.

I always wanted Alan Titchmarsh to do a makeover on my garden. Don't have the time here to potter in the garden as much as I did in the uk. Have a few veg growing in our garden at mo - no greenhouse - cucumber, tomatoes, pumpkins, melons, capsicums. Love fushias and have 2 growing in the garden. Also have something called snow in summer growing here too to remind me of my rockeries in the uk - took a bit to source those.


Be careful with your trees Mark, they can get huge but you need to lob the top off when desired height reached.

Spring is one of my favourite times of the year - promises new beginnings flowers

I too love gardening and can't wait till it warms up and I can get out there. When the weather is good I will be out pottering from 10.am till 6pm, with breaks in between of course.   Very Happy

Gardening? Come on, Andy, get back on court.

Foxgloves for me. Beautiful but deadly.
