Home Page - 'My Garden' - a personal gardening site.
My Garden represents a wide range of rare and unusual plants in a small private garden in Wales, UK, with an emphasis on wildlife and * biodiversity. Hopefully this site acts as a pictorial diary over the seasons and over the coming years of what is growing and flowering, starting with April 2003 and continuing........ You will hopefully be surprised at what you will find on this site and will act as an useful resource of information on a wide range of gardening topics, some quite controversial such as the consequences of the Rio Convention on the future of our gardens! Enjoy!
In 'My Garden', there is a wide range of perennials, bulbs, ferns, shrubs and trees - many of them are very unusual, some are just beautiful garden plants. Perhaps the best description of this garden is that, it is more by accident, a natural, perhaps "wild" garden - a sympathetic marring of the exotic with native species hopefully increasing biodiversity and habitats for wildlife in the local area. It is situated somewhere in North Wales in the United Kingdom. The garden is only quarter of an acre, but part of it is on a steep slope facing south. The sea is just half a mile away. The climate is reasonably mild, on the USDA hardiness zone system (European hardiness zone system z9) this area would be classified as z9 - winter temperatures min. -7° to - 9°C , at worst z8 - winter temperatures min - 12° to -7°C (see page on frost damage). The soil ranges from a woodland loam with an acidic pH of around 5.5-6.0 and on the lower areas there is soil derived from glacial drift with patches of clay in the damper areas. Here the pH varies from 6.0-6.5, almost neutral.
