Knew nothing about gardening when I bought my house five years ago. The garden was a builder's site with virtually no earth. I did use the services of a landscape gardener because a garden is so special to me. He was about to sell up and think I got a few plants not quite right for a tiny walled garden most of which have been pulled out. Being small I kept to a theme of my favourite colours - blue and yellow.
This was the garden originally - getting better - and today.
