I'm a bit of a type A personality so needed to know which grass to put, how it would grow, how much fertilizer it needed,how it would perform in sun or shade etc (kind of like working on a patient :D ). Similarly the few hundred yards or kiyari's posed another adventure. I suddenly realised how interesting gardening is and since the past few months I have been able to think of little else in terms of recreation. My father always loved gardening but I dont know why I never developed an interest. When I read up and investigated I realised it was a world in itself, much like any other complex subject you need to grasp and how it opens up it's secrets as you develve deeper. I am so happy to have a gardening forum like this in Pakistan. Everyone here is great and very helpful. My current passion is fragrant roses, fragrant shurbs and fragrant vines. I'm bringing several bare root and own root roses from the USA soon and inshallah it will be an interesting summer after a wonderful spring in Lahore :D
