About me

Retired to a small jungle on the Yorkshire coast which is slowly becoming a garden. I am a firm believer in the shoe-horn school of gardening. I love exotic and weird plants, but if it grows, I'll probably try it. Like pushing tenderish perennials to the limit using large quantities of straw, fleece and hessian. I lose 70% of my plants that way. Oh and I'm quite famous for my evil sense of humour.
