Leigh in the garden ~ click here to find all my gardening articles

Gardening is one of my great loves.  In the articles listed below I share my ideas, experiences and know-how.  Many books contain information about techniques; there are plenty of those.  My focus is somewhat different: I focus more on the principles of what makes a garden both pleasurable to be in and practical to create and maintain.  I have arrived at these after many hundreds of hours of gardening in a variety of settings, so I am confident they are sound.  Most importantly, having a great garden need not be costly: my own budget is slender, so much of what I describe has been achieved at next to no cost.  My wish is that you enjoy this wonderful way of relating to the living earth as much as I do.
