About me
67 year old retiree, having lived in the Languedoc, France for the past 11 years.

Gardening expertise
Very Keen

Biggest gardening accomplishments
Creating a beautiful, lush garden from scratch, over ten years, for our last house - a 17th century former convent in the south of France. Then tending a seven acre vineyard on a south facing amphitheatre, from pruning to pouring.

Biggest gardening frustrations
Weather extremes.

The gardening project I am currently working on
Home is in the National Park of the High Languedoc in the south of France. I am currently transforming a one acre former vineyard on a hillside into a garden. The 'soil' is shist - we call it pick-axe gardening.
