Hello everybody.
I came across this forum on a random google search (I was actually looking for a new clutch for my car).

I used to live in a 1st floor flat, with a HUGE patio area, which became my Roofgarden.
Hence I was the Roofgardener. And I grew onions and courgettes and chilli's and stuff. And life was good !

But then they demolished the building. Possibly because of my Chilli's !

Now I live in a ground floor cottage in a tiny little village in the East Midlands (UK). But I can't countenance calling myself the ground-floor-cottage-gardener. Anyway, I've already got the roofgardener.org.uk domain ! So Roofgardener I will remain. At least until the domain comes up for renewal.

Unlike my Roofgarden, on which everything I grew was in pots or troughs, my new garden has .. like.. grass, and soil and stuff. And flowerbeds.

It's going to be a learning experience. Previously, if I wanted to cut my "lawn", I picked it up and trimmed it with scissors. Now I need a lawnmower !!

The landlords won't tolerate me cluttering up the garden with plantpots... So I'm restricted to the "official" flowerbeds/borders.
Well.. lets see what we can do with them, shall we ? :)

Welcome Roofgardener. :) With the growing ability you already have it won't be difficult transferring that to a garden, pulling weeds will be a whole new experience though.

Oh, did you find the clutch?

Bonjour, Roofgardener! Will you plant perennials or annuals? :giggle:
