Welcome to my first gardening post. I have never considered myself as a green thumb. I have always been a plant ’em and hope for the best kind of girl.
It took a long time to figure out that you need to give them a bit of love, water, plant food, sunlight (but not too much), fertile soil, and pruning. Obvious to the seasoned gardener, but oh so foreign to me.
So here is our front garden. On the left is our garden bed with clay soil, a lot of shade in the morning from the hedge and a lot of direct afternoon sun. (It’s pretty bare at the moment.)
Our 4 roses bushes now reside underneath our bedroom window. I’m hoping eventually we can look out and enjoy their beauty and fragrance.
The first bush/tree is a Pink Iceberg. Being the amateur gardener that I am, I know this because I was clever enough to leave the original tag on.
