About me

I am a Dutch native but have lived here in the UK for over 30 years. My interest in gardening started when my father passed away 17 years ago and I found digging in the soil a very therapeutic way of dealing with my grief. Married with two teenage boys I work at the local secondary school as a Modern Foreign Languages co-ordinator, being a linguist gives me great joy. Unfortunately my family do not share my passion for gardening but living in Shropshire there are plenty of lovely gardens and nurseries to visit and get inspiration from.
