About me

Hello, I have a smallish garden in the middle of a city - It's a Victorian terrace house with 5 ft high walls around the back garden. I love clematis so am growing several in the ground and in pots. have just acquired a small greenhouse which I've filled with tomatoes, chllies and a cucumber. am also trying to grow lots of other veg in pots as tho' we have an allotment I can't do much there as am in plaster for months so am just letting the things I put in "pre accident"like potatoes, broad beans and onions grow there. The front is just a tiny square with an ancient climbing rose and various pots and more tomatoes in hanging baskets (Tumbler). Still doing what little bit I can in the garden is keeping me sane! Update, April 23 rd 2012. Well did a bit last year after the Achilles problem but missed lots of the spring and summer. i've now had a knee replacement in Feb this year and am really pleased that I can manage to do quite a lot - not very quickly yet but it's much better than I feared and brilliant to be able to enjoy gardening again.
