About me

I moved to France with my husband in 2001. Although my favourite hobby was painting, since we've moved to a place with a large garden this has taken over, and I'm absolutely hooked on plants(buying) changing the garden and growing veg as well as producing cuttings and mostly growing from seeds. We have maybe a 1/4 acre and have several mature trees - 4 apple , 1 apricot and a greengage. We did have a peach and nectarine which a very severe frost destroyed. There is also an enormous walnut which is very productive.
