About me

Very keen amateur, I am a member of 3 Garden Clubs.
I have a small garden but with a greenhouse, I specialise in fuchsias which I can keep heated in winter.
My main problems are: slugs and snails which this summer have decimated my Hostas and container Dahlias. I also am constantly trying to balance my love of wild birds and need to control weeds (mostly from excess bird seed!). I have done a short Garden Design Course, which has helped me to learn many of the Latin names for plants, and plan garden areas for colour, height and seasonal interest. This year I have concentrated on establishing a small Glade, using a variety of shade and partial-shade plants, Hellebores, hardy Gardenias, Ferns.
