Love Gardening! Issue #16: Newsletter: Pergola pictures, pruning tips and an interesting new plant!

Out with the rain and in with the sun. How much better is that!

Everyone's getting going in the garden - clearing, snipping and pruning. The usual topics of conversation keep cropping up over the garden wall, of course: plants - what's dead and what's not dead; structural and landscaping ideas for the year to come; and 'To snip, or not to snip - that is the question!'

So I've put together some hints and tips...

Planting: How plants have faired this winter, taking care of treasured ones, and a promising newcomer.

Find out what it is, and ideas for using it in your garden.

Pergolas: These are pictures of the ones you've made. Yes you! There are some fabulous designs. Be proud, be very proud!

Pruning: The first cut is the deepest (It isn't really! but that song just keeps coming into my head. Bonus points for anyone who can name the original singer!). Find out a simple way to decide where to snip!

Before we take a look...

I love to hear about what's going on in your garden. Feel free to chip in with thoughts, ideas and pictures of your projects, whatever they might be!

Just drop me a line

To share pictures, the best way to do it is on the 'Your Stories' page. It doesn't have to be a story, as such. It can be about your pergola, or a favourite plant that you'd think other readers would be interested in, a landscaping feature (like a pond or deck) and how you went on.

We really look forward to hearing all about it!

Let's get on then...
