New Gardening Tips and Blog Posts

Hi - this is the place where I post all my new articles for this website, the results of garden trials and simply having fun in the garden. This website started in 1995 when I had my nursery (hence the name) and I still report on plants and the techniques I'm learning to grow them.

So, if you're interested in getting the latest articles, sign up for the feed or the newsletter on the left hand nav bar (or both because they're different).

In answer to the question, "What have you done for me lately?" :-) Here it is.

Remember though, if you're not having fun gardening - you're doing it wrong.
