    Hi,

    My wife and I bought a 1930’s semi in North Surrey in 2013; following an extensive renovation we now have the fun job of rediscovering what we have in the ~1/5 Acre mature gardens.

    There are overgrown borders and four 50yr+ fruit trees, so i’ll be hoping to learn on this forum and bring the Garden back to it’s glory days

    Also the neighbours have told me that the entire lawn was previously put over to fruit and veg from around 1940 through to the 1980’s whilst in the ownership of a family with two very competent gardeners.......I have to get up to speed pretty quickly to do the Garden justice Will probably be posting loads of questions and photos over the next few weeks/months - hopefully I don’t become a pain

    Cheers

    Rhydian

      Welcome to the forum!

      I am probably the least knowledgeable on this forum but I look forward to your posts and the answers :)

      When you have time it would be great if you can add your growing zone/general location to your profile so we can all offer helpful advice.

      In the meantime I can offer advice on how to shovel snow in March to get to your greenhouse or cold frame :biggrin:
