    Lightbulb Newbie, not too new in the garden.

    Hi everyone,

    I've recently discovered this site after having a bit of a struggle. I decided to join because everyone on here seems very supportive and helpful to eachother!

    I'm a keen gardener, I have a HUGE garden which I sometimes struggle to keep up with and somewhere like this is great for tips and tricks!

    My basic set up in my garden is made up on beds, topsoil and homemade compost (which I struggle with! I always end up buying the stuff )

    If anyone has any suppliers of topsoil, compost and anything else let me know!

    Keep pottering!

    Hello and welcome to the forum.
    I've removed the advertising links as we all know what topsoil is

    Hi and welcome

    I think this forum is great. Lots of lovely peeps and lots of tips and tricks for everyone not just newbies. I have noticed a big difference in my garden already for the sake of months.

    Where abouts in the world are you? It will help with peeps suggesting where you might get topsoil/ spent mushroom compost/ horsey poo etc. etc.

    When you say HUGE - how HUGE are we talking? Kristen (grape) has a lovely blog worth checking out if you need to get to grips with huge areas/garden and he shows you how he has tackled all the different areas.

    If you have specific questions just ask away

    Hello and welcome to the vine B Walker.

    There's really no need to buy topsoil! Compost everything, use grass clippings to mulch which eventually rots down, stables give away free manure if you can pick it up.
    Best keep your money for seeds

    Post some pics of your big plot (don't be shy) we all love a nosey on here!
