About me
I'm a decrepid old relic!79 years old,been living here 49 years.Developed the garden from a raw builders plot with terrible soil-

Gardening expertise
Very Keen

Biggest gardening accomplishments
I don't know?.Iv'e changed the design so many times in the 49 years Iv'e been here.

Biggest gardening frustrations
CATS and badgers.North-westerly winds.

The gardening project I am currently working on
My garden slopes to nort-west,at 79, my age restricts many activities,so I have slowly been making a path and steps to areas now difficult to reach.It's not very profesional looking,but it works.
