About me

Hi everyone, finally got round to updating my profile, I was a gardener, but had to give it up to look after my disabled wife, not very good at identifying varieties within a species, but not too bad at growing them!!.
I used to grow annual bedding every year, but have decided to change over to perennials as Idon,t have the time I would like to devote to them now, especially as I,m getting older, {all that digging} derekm.
