Gardening expertise
Very Keen

Biggest gardening accomplishments
My Hot Bed 2009 - full of bright reds, oranges and yellows, with some new perennials eg Achillea, Coreopsis, Geums & Kniphofia, filled in with annuals like marigolds and nasturtiums.

Biggest gardening frustrations
Evil slugs eating the only two flower spikes on my brand new Kniphofia Tawny King before I saw them!

The gardening project I am currently working on
Trying to get as many different and favourite flowers into a mature but boring planting (mostly shrubs) inherited when we moved 2 years ago
