About me
I am a 'hit and miss' keen gardener and am forever moving things. My garden is not immaculate by any means but is still very presentable most of the time. I do however keep perservering with plants that just don't like the conditions! I LOVE!!!! camellia but they HATE my garden so I grow a couple in tubs to satisfy my needs.My profile image is of a bouquet I made up as a gift from the flowers in my garden at the time and I was very pleased with it. Talk about blowing your own trumpet!! I just wish I had my 57 years over again because by the time I've learned by my mistakes it seems too late. I should have planted an apple tree 27 years ago!

Gardening expertise
Very Keen

Biggest gardening accomplishments
Growing asiatic lilies which are admired by my friends.

The gardening project I am currently working on
NOW THAT THE CONIFER IS OUT OF THE WAY! I have created 3 beds across the garden to try to keep all the 'pretty' plants in one place . I have a central bed which is to be 'shrubby' and therefore hopefully low maintenance and a bed either side with 'cottage
