“I like muddling things up; and if a herb looks nice in a border, then why not grow it there? Why not grow anything anywhere so long as it looks right where it is? That is, surely, the art of gardening.” Vita Sackville-West

There is a handy Garden Guide Book which identifies weeds and areas of the garden that are available for you to work in if the mood takes you. There is a full range of garden tools and gloves in the potting shed.
