About me

I have a small garden which is packed full of mainly herbaceous plants. I have a greenhouse which is always full...I had a small streptocarpus collection and grow plants from seed. I trial plants for one of the big growers and its often a struggle to find space for their plants and mine, particularly in the spring when I have dahlia cuttings in the hot box!!
I live on the coast of beautiful Northumberland and am a gardening volunteer at the amazing Alnwick Garden and have been for 8 years. I am a regular contributor for one of the gardening newspapers, writing a monthly piece on my garden and... I have an allotment, and polytunnel which I am enjoying very much.
I am involved with another charity. The RNLI having recently taken over as Secretary of our local Ladies Luncheon can see I am a busy girl!!
I edit some pages for GoYpedia:

Folklore of Plants; Variegated Plants, Shrubs and Trees;
Plants with Berries; Winter Colour Plantes; Summer Bulbs; Bearded Iris: autumn Bulbs; Bamboos; English Daffs; Hanging Basket Plants; Japanese Maples; Summer Colour Plants; Tree Ferns; Winter Container Plantes; Summer Container Planets; Small Trees; Shade Planets; Ornamental Grasses; Hedge Plants; African 'Violets; Geraniums; Pelargoniums; Scented Flowers; Streptocarpus; Alpines; Evergreens; Evergreen Climbers.
