Jennifer Napier, My Garden (W13)

Styles: English cottage, Suburban, Water, Wildlife

Soil types: Clay

Soil drainage: Moist but well-drained

Soil pH: Alkaline

Light: Partial Shade

Aspect: North

Exposure: Sheltered

Hardiness: Hardy (H4)

A north-facing garden, with alkaline, clay soil, but fortunately it is not water-clogged. The hope is to entice bees, insects, frogs and birds into the garden, whilst avoiding molluscs! Want a cottagey feel, full of life, flowers, scents. Next year will try my hand at vegetable growing in the smaller bed.

About me
A horticulturalist almost at the beginning of her career! I have had one previous garden and leaving that behind was the hardest thing about moving house. Likely to have our small, sunny London garden for some years to come, so we have just had the gravel and membrane removed, and are doing what we can to coax the worms over. We had a pond and waterfall built near our sunny patio, and hope to have leaves, flowers and scents all round. We already have a few resident frogs enjoying the new pond and foliage. With the rest of the time I am a GP, and do research in burnout in doctors. My other hobbies are singing and yoga.

Gardening expertise

Biggest gardening accomplishments
Creating a gorgeous scented container garden against the river in Canterbury.

Biggest gardening frustrations
Difficult to say just yet!

The gardening project I am currently working on
Establishing a new garden with a bed of shrubs and flowers, as well as a pond. We were given a fig tree, which I hope will grow in it's sunny corner.
