About me

I have a very steep garden, partly terraced, with a small stream at the bottom - about forty feet below the front garden level. The most level part at the back is builder's rubble and clay subsoil. - I have started raised beds, but there is a bit of a light problem too!

The front garden is great - south facing, and my project is to make a real cottage garden there.

I'm into organic, natural and that sort of stuff. Tend to garden in bursts of enthusiasm then get distracted.
