Hi, love gardening?
Hi, I’m Julietta.
I’m often found gardening in Northern Ireland – not very successfully, but very enthusiastically.
I’m a late convert to gardening, but am now totally obsessed. When I started gardening, I wanted a manicured lawn, easy to manage evergreen shrubs and a few pretty but tidy flowers. So I weeded, swept, shredded, removed, smothered and did quite a lot of damage with chemical pesticides and fertilizers in those first years.
After watching a lot of Gardener’s World and reading about permaculture, organic gardening and soil health – I have FINALLY found what I am passionate about. It’s the SOIL. It’s PLANTS. It’s GARDENING. But gardening in harmony with nature – both above and below the ground.
