The Garden Community for Garden Lovers

A long time.....


After several years away, I have finally returned to this great site!
Lots of things have got in the way….work, illness, operations, first grandchild, work, work, more work, covid, home improvements…..
Anyway, I plan on being more active, so hope to make new friends and re-connect with old ones.
My plant interests have increased, and my borders look better for it!!
Hardy Geraniums are still being grown, as are alpines. Primula, Meconopsis, Thalictrum, Agapanthus and Buddleja have become favourites as well.

Hope to see you soon.

A long time no see Richard, welcome back, it seems a lot has happened over the years, life does have a habit of getting away from us..I hope all is well now and that you are fully recovered.
Congratulations on your first grandchild, always a blessing and you get to relive all the happy times one enjoys when having children around...
Looking forward to seeing your garden again ....

Hi Richard! You must have left shortly before I joined. Looking forward to getting to know you and your garden.

Me too.
Please let us see some of your favourite plants and your garden too.
Hardy geraniums love our garden but one or two are a bit on the large side. Perhaps you could recommend some smaller varieties please.
