About me
I've had my garden for over 10 years and while I always tried to keep it tidy, it's only in the last few years that I can honestly say I've become obsessed - maybe an age thing! At first I was only interested in foliage plants but now I can't get enough flowers packed in. I also have greenhouse and propogator to bring on from seeds collected.

Gardening expertise
Very Keen

Biggest gardening accomplishments
Making and restocking new borders - still lots of bare earth but hopefully now I've treated myself to a lovely greenhouse I'll be able to stock up this year!

Biggest gardening frustrations
Creeping buttercup and slugs - if only the slugs ate that instead of my new plants!

The gardening project I am currently working on
Trying to find exciting plants for woodland area under tree.
