Horticulturalhobbit Wiki

Welcome to the Horticulturalhobbit Wiki

A record of a novice container gardener. What started out as simple science project to pass the time and evolved into an investigation into growing your own produce. All being well, I will try and add more details. So watch this space.

On twitter? So is horticultural Hobbit. Look for HorticulturalH

As well as facebook

This is a record of my experience of container gardening. I don't profess to be an expert, so this wiki records my efforts, the many things that I have learned, and hopefully will share with others what I have encountered. Some of it may be useful, some may need revision. All being well, over time, this will grow and become a resource for fellow garderners. Enjoy!
