Hi Owain,

I'm also new. I find it interesting how you run a gardening business. What do you consider to be your favourite plant in the garden?

Hi jack

My personal favourite type of plants are grass's and my favourite grass is probably Japanese Bloodgrass, it is fairly rare I got mine from wisely flower show.

I managed to find a picture of some 'Japanese Bloodgrass' in one of my Dads gardening books. I love the vibrant red colour of the leaves.

Welcome! Very cool that you are into gardening at such a young age, and also that you're making it into a business. (y)

Next spring I am eradicating my front lawn and putting in nothing but perennials, including ornamental grasses. I did that at my last house. The Japanese bloodgrass looks pretty. My challenge is I have a lot of trees so mostly what I plant will have to be somewhat shade-tolerant, but on the plus side I have excellent soil here.

Welcome, and as others have said it's a great thing that you've got such a passion for gardening already. I would say that I only got into gardening myself in about the last 5 years and I wish I had taken an interest sooner!

I noticed your post and I've checked out your YouTube channel. Your garden looks beautiful!
