About me

Recently retired and moved to rural Devon with my partner, where we have a garden which will be about 25ft square. Tiny wildlife pond has gone in a far corner and one frog has since moved in so happy events expected soon! My partner has erected a small greenhouse (yet to be glazed) and dug a strip down one side for a prospective vegetable patch.

Other than that we have a more or less clean slate - we shall see how it develops. I am definitely not an experienced gardener, my knowledge of plants is practically non-existent and house plants (apart from a couple of obviously very hardy specimens) quake in my presence.
