    Hello,
    My name is Paul. I live near a small village in South Wales. Been in the house just over a year and now work is complete inside the house it is time to get working on the garden. I am an absolute novice at gardening and want to turn all the grass around my house into a garden. I look forward to reading posts here and also getting advice (lots of) from people here.
    Thanks for looking in.

          Small world - would drive down the A48 to get to the weekly shop in Tescos Newport - been through Caerwent thousands of times - including astride a Suzuki GS500. I was young once....:biggrin:.

          Haven't heard of Caerwent for a few years, Paul. Coach terminal pre-Severn Bridge days.

          I'm certainly NO expert, if there is such a thing. There are hordes of gardeners who'll write extra 'Commandments' to the basic Ten, but don't be told what to do. Listen to advice by all means but don't be surprised if others say the opposite. I don't want to break forum rules but, if there's a route for personal messages, I can 'Forward' a number of saved files (all too big to post on here) that might help get you started.

          Hi @Paul4321 and welcome to the forum. Used to know Caerwent and Chepstow well. Is the Three Tuns in Chepstow still open?
