About me

I first joined this site in April 2008, but rejoined with my present username in 2009.

In my west-facing garden I have lots of shrubs climbers and hardy perennials.
I also enjoy growing cacti, succulents, and Fuchsias,
and I've got a small raised bed and polytunnel where I grow a few vegetables and tomatoes, peppers, etc.
