About me
An eager, but time-poor gardener, I have potted around for around 20 years in our current garden, tweaking and digging and moving but still have lots that I would like to do. I have very good at getting back to a blank canvas but not so good at building the new vision . We all need help, guidance and inspiration in our hobby and when I came across the Shoot web-site it seemed an obvious club to join. Within a few weeks I had moved from free to annual to life time membership.

Gardening expertise
Very Keen

Biggest gardening accomplishments
No big accomplishment but many small victories the biggest of the small being keeping the garden in hand for 20 years or so despite busy job and other interests. Others include digging that pond, regular veg and some fruit and my figs !

Biggest gardening frustrations
My compost is more of a weed seed distribution service than compost ! Just can't get it hot enough for long enough.

The gardening project I am currently working on
Shoot Garden care calendar !
