About me

I live in Sutton Coldfield and am a recently retired teacher. I have just started the RHS Level 2 in Horticulture and a Garden Design course.

When I re-married 4 years ago, we took on a garden which had been a football pitch for 3 boys for 10 years! I am just about back in control of it! I am passionate about plants...but need to know more! I look forward to learning a lot from you good folk!

2011 Returned to teaching on 2 afternoons per week...the recession bites....has hit business hard!

We are awaiting the arrival of grandchild number 5 in two weeks. It's getting very expensive now!Where did the time go? Starting to feel ancient! LOL.
