  • Gardening!

    I assume most of us here are keen gardeners and was wondering what everyone is growing, style of garden, fruit veg flowers and so on.
    Myself I'm into exotic style plants bamboo, bananas, cannas. Always trying to jungle up the back garden with interesting plants and the great thing is they all love a mulch with the homemade compost!

    I have a traditional garden but my raised beds are veg suppliers using the square foot method to maximise my yields in small spaces. I have literally just chopped the greenhouse inn half so it is now 7'5 x 10' which is all we need now the kids have left home. My hot bin hopefully will produce enough compost that I won't need to buy it anymore!

      Hi Stew, I have an allotment which I manage using Charles Dowding's no dig methods. This means I need all the home made compost I can make, as each year every veg/fruit bed requires an inch or two of mulch spread on top. Well rotted manure is also good to use so I get as much of that as I can and I also have 'cool' compost bins which still produce good stuff, although of course not at the speed of the Hotbin! So I don't grow any of the stuff you grow - are you actually in the UK or not!? Interesting to hear you're growing such exotic stuff. I grow the usual things (veg, fruit) plus have 4 apple trees, also a Japanese Wineberry, and I just love those little fruits!
