Why did we start the Disabled Gardening Site?
I didn’t realise how amazing it is to be able to spend time outdoors actually making a difference to my surroundings until I had a garden of my own. My first outdoor garden was in London when I lived in a little flat (apartment) on the ground floor. The outdoor space was filled with – nothing but mud and garbage! Cleaning it up took ages but little by little I was able to grow herbs and annuals in pots and boxes in the yard.
When I had a more permanent home I began to grow shrubs too and other interesting plants. As I learned I turned into a real enthusiast. I needed some help but I wanted to do things myself and I was always pleased to find a tool or method that made the physical effort of gardening easier.
I felt that sharing my experiences would help other gardeners with physical challenges so I started a blog with my frind, Julie. Not only has it put us in touch with others with great ideas, I have come to realise that people face difficulties I had never experienced and many are just getting older – like me!
