Started gardening during lockdown and need simple, straightforward advice? I’m here to help!
One positive thing that’s come out of the coronavirus pandemic and lockdown is that people who had no interest in gardening have realised it’s a great way to keep fit, destress and look after your mental health.
I sat thinking in my little gardening bolthole the other day thinking about this. I have lots of useful information in more than 1,000 posts and 130 pages but there wasn’t a category especially for beginners, whether children or adults.
Now I’ve put that right – anything that’s of use to you is under the new category Gardening for Beginners – it does what it says on the tin. You’ll find it on the home page of the site in its own panel with a selection of past posts featured each day. New posts will appear in the Latest Posts section of the home page.
I’ve gone right back to the start of the site, so there will be growing information, coping with small gardens and products.
Gardening for the less able
On top of that, check out the Pages – there you will find information on individual plants, jobs and problems and if you’re really stuck, feel free to drop me a line on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram.
For those who haven’t stumbled upon my site before, I’ve been gardening since I was a kid. I have epilepsy and Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (too stretchy ligaments and terrible balance), so I have to adapt ‘normal’ gardening practice to suit what I can do. No power tools allowed and anything which puts less stress on my joints to save injury is good for me.
