Welcome to Garden Posts
The purpose of this blog is to follow the trials and tribulations of a vegetable and flower gardener in South Oxfordshire.
Our plot is just under an acre, not far from the River Thames.
The front garden is mostly laid to lawn. The frontage has a rail and post fence that has recently planted natural hedging comprised of beech, hawthorn, blackthorn and field maple. We lost a few beech whips, but most are doing well and the hedge is starting to look a little more established now.
A large part of the back garden is laid to lawn and functions as football pitch, rugby field, tennis court and cricket oval to our 3 boys.
Tucked away at the back of the garden we have two raised vegetable patches, a greenhouse and shed.
