About me

In 2015 I moved from Kent to a rural cottage in Shropshire relocating my Husband's business and my daughter moving up close by to join the company. The last owners had lived here for 40 years so it has a well established garden but somewhat neglected and feels like every weed known in it! I'm not a very experienced gardener so spending I lot of my time pouring through books and looking up on the internet to find out what plants I've got and how to look after them without killing them.
