About me

I have been gardening at 'Devonia' since moving here in 1984. I inherited two apple trees, six leylandii (small and recently planted thank goodness), six shrubs all planted in the wrong conditions, and bindweed.
Since then, it has become a plantsman's garden, planted for all season interest. I work on a 'no watering' principle for all established plants which could become critical as our climate changes
