    Hi,
    I'm Rob from west Dorset with a springer and a small garden.
    I love growing tomatoes (all new varieties to me this year) and chillies all in pots and no f1s.
    Two apple and pear trees, a grape vine and a few flowers.
    Rob

      Hi Rob, welcome to the GC Gang:love30::thumbsup::) Some of the Gang garden with just containers on a balcony, some with a paved yard, small garden, or to those with at least a couple of acres, while we have those who have just started gardening to those who are experienced, specialists or experts and all are very friendly and willing to help, or advise, those who are in need of it. You will need a sense of humour as some of the Gang was "slightly mad" (not me of course) and they are issued with a "special jacket" and Blue Pills:dunno::heehee:.
      Have you any pictures of your garden?, what direction does it face, and what kind of soil does it have?............and what's the name of your Dog??:doggieshmooze::coffee:

              Have to dig out the camera and get Stan to sit in the middle of them.

                  Exactly! If the cap fits and all that, "they're coming to take me away he he!" if you are old enough to remember that song.

                          Welcome to the forum! I'm always an ocean behind in greeting new members so please ignore my tardeiness.

                          I grow lots in containers and the rest in raised gardens, which really are just bigger containers :)

                            Thanks CL.
                            Well, on first impressions it looks as though I might fit in here.
                            Lots of threads to read so best get stuck in.
                            Cheers.

                              Thanks, I never thought of Wareham as being east Darrzaaat? and only 13 miles from me.
