    Default Hello from Hampshire

    Hello all. I've been lurking for a little while, and thought it was about time I joined in the fun!
    I've got a pretty small garden but have somehow managed to shoehorn in a few dwarf fruit trees, raspberry canes, rhubarb, gooseberry bush, strawberries, onions, carrots and potatoes all in pots, and have a little raised bed with purple sprouting broccoli, cauliflowers and a little pumpkin plant, all of which seem to be growing like triffids Think I might have got a bit overambitious!
    Anyway, am looking forward to learning lots from you lovely people!

    Thank you all for the welcomes. I love my garden and spend a fair bit of time pottering around checking my plants for mini beasts, and admiring all my goodies!
    I would love love love an allotment, but 1st have to indoctrinate my 3yr old in the ways . Hence the strawberries, raspberries and blueberries (forgot to mention them!)
