I moved last November and I have never had a garden before.
There is stuff growing that I have no idea about.
So far there has been a massive showing of snowdrops, crocuses and now daffs.
That is about the limit of my knowledge.
I could be a lazy git and just post pics on here but I am sure there must be some app which will help identify plants.
I am going to stick some pics up anyway but help with an app would be appreciated.
From a few weeks agos
I think these are wallflowers?
The bees seem to love this shrub
Looks like a lizard plant
Think that’s a David Ickeus
Try the PlantNet app Kev if you have an android phone - it’s really quite impressive at identifying plants.
No ganja so far. Disappoint.
I know nothing about growing anything you cannot eat or smoke but it looks like you have dropped on a goldmine.
It might well be planned for successional displays so be careful what you pull up.
Yep, wait a year and see what else comes up as the seasons progress.
I’m jealous, we’re still weeks away from spring here
I wouldn’t touch the garden for a whole year until you’ve seen what it looks like in all 4 seasons, and then use that to plan for next year.
The last owners were quite keen gardners and the owner before that was the secretary or chairman or something of the local horticultural society.
I think there has been a lot of work put into it.
When I viewed the house the seller told me that the front garden in particular was designed with insects, butterflies and bees in mind.
Quite a few people have told me to record everything for the first year and not to do anything above routine maintenance.
yep, leave it alone, I can’t stand a cultivated garden, I cut the grass in the middle but whatever else grows is it’s business.
I took on the advice of leaving the garden to see what it does when we moved in here…Turns out we don’t have a garden, in terms of vegetation we have 3.
After a year I found that my primary crops were cat shit and nettles.
Hopefully you wont find one of these @Kevin
pretty sure I went down on her at a house party in 1992
