I began gardening when I married and moved into my first home about 5 years ago which came equipped with an apple tree and a few roses. My first passion is roses. A close second is Lilies! I love anything just about anything that grows from a bulb (tuber/corm etc)

I have been experimenting with gardening to find what are my challenges, loves, successes and failures. I seem to have great success with container gardening and love to start my plants from my own seeds, whenever possible (although I find that they really don't do well for me, but it gives me something to look forward to in the winter months), and love to grow herbs, expecially basil which does extremely well for me. I am somewhat of a purist when it comes to herbs, none of that Purple basil stuff for me. Although I bet it would look really pretty in the garden ;>)

I love purple and red foliage on plants. I tend to prefer jewel tone flowers over pastels.

Would love to get some tips from all new gardening friends here!
