About me

A distinctly amateur gardener who enjoys the challenge of establishing and maintaining a flower garden in unpromising circumstances: an east facing site, with a huge copper beech on one side, and a substantial pink chestnut on the other. Over ten years have more or less worked out what will survive and provide more or less continuous flowering throughout the summer. Enjoy discovering new varieties of current favourites or new plants which will add to already crowded borders.
