About Me

Gardening

Gardening has always been a central part of my life.

Growing up, both of my parents were very keen gardeners. We had a very large yard with a huge range of different plants and vegetables.

My mother mainly dealt with the plants and flowers while my father was more interested in the vegetables.

I fondly remember helping both of them with various tasks in the garden and my passion was kickstarted.

Gradually, as I grew older, I was allowed to experiment more by myself and I had my own patch with some veg as well as trying my hand at growing a good variety of different plants.

My first few apartments had no outside space I could call my own. I contented myself with window boxes so that I could at least grow some herbs. I made sure to keep lots of plants inside.

Finally, now that I am married with a couple of kids, I have my own house with enough space out back to return to gardening properly. My wife shares my interest and, now they are getting a little older, my children are also starting to dabble.

For me, gardening is that perfect combination of an art and a science. It’s very creative and extremely relaxing.

Here I intend to share as many of my experiences with you as possible. Over time, I want this site to be an evolving resource for all your gardening and planting needs.

Don’t hesitate to get in touch. Let us know what you think. Ask any questions you might have.

But most of all…

Enjoy!
