About me
I LOVE my garden and many of my happiest times, like so many others, are just pottering. I've built up a fair collection of good to outstanding plants. I collect perennial salvias, penstemons, grasses, asters, although I've ditched some I found don't do so well. I have something in flower, from early January starting with Hellebores in a good year, and ending with my salvias in early December. Gardeners' World filmed my garden in April 2008 and Richard Holmes, the producer, declared it to be a little gem, although the footage wasn't used. I love discovering new good plants and introducing others to them. I get so much pleasure out of all the bees and birds that come into the garden too, so I rarely use pesticides. We have a pond with goldfish, but the frogs and other pond life use it too. Between them, the frogs and visiting hedgehogs do a pretty good job on the slugs.

Biggest gardening accomplishments

The gardening project I am currently working on
We are gradually developing a veg. patch in the front garden. My husband's making a chicken run there too. We also grow a lot of veg in the local council's redundant recycling boxes.
