Hi from Wicklow
« on: May 10, 2015, 21:20 »
Been reading and finding great advice/tips from this forum since I came across it earlier in the year, so thought I take the plunge and register.
Lucky enough to have my back garden of acre as my allotment and eventually after 14 years of concentrating on doing up house and equally large front garden, I got to work on the back and 2 summers ago put up two 50ft by 18ft polytunnels and this year created a 30ft by 30ft raised outdoor plot.
I think I spent more time in the tunnels last year than I did in work and was got totally hooked on growing veg and fruit and some plant cuttings.
Last summer was the first time I ever grew anything although my father was a gardener so maybe its in the genes and I was delighted with my success's and hopefully learned a bit from my mistakes.
Really looking forward to see how this year turns out especially with my outdoor planting as everything was grown indoor last year
