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. It's inspiring to see what others have achieved in their gardens and stealing with your eyes is not a crime!
