About me

I live in Brighton and have a fair size south facing garden. Over the last 4 years I have tried to make it more attractive by planting a selection of shrubs and plants on a pretty random basis which has worked pretty well and its now looking more mature but i still need to learn more about plants that can survive the heat and lack of shade without complaint. Not having planned ahead I am now confronted with some things growing too big in the wrong place, others are now well established but also in need of attention. I also want to start growing veg, hopefully in a raised bed, but at present just started off some seeds ( courgette, peppers, beans etc) but not too sure how they will survive when planted out....
