About me
I've always loved gardening and find it so relaxing. Especially love herbaceous borders and enjoy looking around traditional nurseries for new plants. Like to have plenty of garden birds and pond life, although don't enjoy cleaning the pond!

Gardening expertise
Very Keen

Biggest gardening accomplishments
Planting up a flower border. Monardas, can't get enough of them.

Biggest gardening frustrations
Snails, mowing the lawns and ever expanding rhubarb! Oh and runaway bamboo, yes, how naive!

The gardening project I am currently working on
Sorting out vegetable plot. Never been very good at vegetables but will try.
