About me
Retired. Now do voluntary work as museum guide, some tutoring and give occasional lectures on Literary subjects. Have son, daughter and three grandchildren. Londoner now transplanted to Fife via Brighton, Egham, Windsor, Wolverhampton, York, Chesterfield, Edinburgh and Ontario. Other interests: Books, cycling, duplicate bridge, cinema, X-word puzzles, galleries and museums, music - esp. Bob Dylan, Neil Young, The Band, Springsteen, Paul Simon, John Lennon, Eva Cassidy, Kate Bush, Ella Fitzgerald, Sinatra, Peggy Lee.... Gardening level should say" very keen but limited!"

Gardening expertise
Very Keen

Biggest gardening accomplishments
Establishing what I have from a 30 year neglected pile of builders' rubble old tree stumps etc. over heavy clay subsoil.

Biggest gardening frustrations
Well to be brief...... pruning disasters - too many to mention. Failure of my Acer Prinz Handjery to produce foliage that is fresh and healthy, rather than "dried up", wizened. Similar state of Magnolia Stellata. Inability to understand garden plan area of this site. Technophobe par excellence! Lack of any real sense of design, though sometimes lucky.

The gardening project I am currently working on
Extending my range of grasses and moving on the transition from spring to summer.
