Gardening information and Advice.

Gardening is no less popular now than it was ten years ago. What is certain, is that gardening for most folks has changed. The changes have come about in the main by a changing lifestyle - often with fewer hours to spend on gardening, and of course because of the television coverage of all manner of gardening events and subjects.

Gardening is going from strength to strength, and is a great hobby to have - especially in these increasingly busy times. There is nothing quite so satisfying as starting your plants off and seeing them reach maturity - giving you a show of colour in what is becoming a stressful life. Take time out for your garden. Your life will be fuller for it!

To get you off to a good start, we are starting a new section simply about How to Garden! If you feel there is a subject that deserves more attention, please feel free to contact us.

We re-introduce the Flowertime Project  which had to be put on ice last year.

We also re-introduce our Gardening Events Section

Our target and mission statement if you like, is to keep ahead of the changes and bring them to you on this website.

We will listen. We want to make this your site for gardening advice and information.
