About me

I live in a large Leicestershire village with my husband - no pets or children. Our house is a modern detached with a garden that I would describe as a 'Modern Cottage'. It measures approx 8 x 5 metres but has room for a patio, lawn, borders, shed, gazebo, seating areas and a wildlife pond, complete with frogs & newts. I have been interested in gardening for about 8 years and this is my second garden. I love watching gardening programmes, reading gardening magazines & visiting garden centres (even managing to drag my husband along). I think my ideal garden would be a walled garden, I like both formal & informal designs & am currently trying to complete a garden design course. My other hobbies include music, walking and playing on the Wii.
