It can be very demoralizing when starting a garden from scratch. When we established the garden on our plot, we planted little trees that never seemed to grow! It was only when I looked back at the previous years photographs that I realized the progress that they had made. Those who have visited Grow Wild will know that our forests are now well established. It's also a good idea to keep a scrap book of photos from magazines or the internet with interesting features like pots, Aloe gardens, water features etc.
