About me

I love gardening, have a largish (over 200 feet) garden, very mature, which was in terrible condition when we moved here 8 years ago. Many years of hard work have followed! I also love bonsai trees so have plenty to do. I mainly have shrubs, trees and plants, and don't grow veg. I love lillies, bonsai and orchids and have small wild orchids growing in my garden. I have a wood and stream at the very end of the garden, so have masses of wild garlic in the Spring and have been gradually adding seeds and am hoping for a wildflower section to encourage bees & butterflies next year. I am lucky to live on the South Coast and we have the best and warmest weather in the country with plenty of sun which suits my large palm tree! I garden alone as the rest of my family only enter the garden to eat bbq food so it is pretty much my domain! I have a little sumerhouse where 2 of my favourite bonsais join me for a coffee and the occasional read, when there is time - not often enough!!
