About me

I am in my mid 70's and as a gardener I'm a "Has Been".
Unfortunately I suffer from emphysema and am on oxygen for most of the time, but had previously gardened for years. I just love plants, and gradually got rid of my lawn in order to plant more and more plants. Perennials are my favourites. I will try to put a photo online as soon as possible to show my previous garden which was created from scratch on a building site. I love Carol Klein's enthusiasm. She is the kind of gardener I was.
I still have knowledge and still like to learn.
