Hi all, I live in the UK and have a large garden, but due to owning an ex racing greyhound who has no respect for my garden or lawn I tend to do most of my gardening in pots.
This year apart from my lily bulbs I am trying to grow runner beans, peppers, radish, lettuce, beetroot, and this year I am trying butternut sqaush and mouli raddish.
I look forward to learning a lot here and perhaps being able to help others out occasionally.

I love tiger lilies too, especially like that icon :D

Thankyou, that flower is one of my own that I grew from seed, and I am really proud of it, I do not think it is unique enough to be able to sell it but its a fun hobby.

Welcome! As a side note, I had no idea that folks in other countries adopted ex-racing greyhounds as well. I've known many folks here that have adopted former greyhounds thru the various rescue orgs around.

Good luck with your garden this year!

Hi, Greyhound adoption is very big over here in the UK, there are lots of rehoming centres and they do a great job.
Thanks for the welcome, I am sure I am going to enjoy being here.
