About me

I had to retire through ill health Sept 08, so now have time, and some energy, to concentrate on my little garden. Ilive in central London.I have never gardened before, but am really enjoying it. I have a small area outside my flat which I have fenced off, which has made a big difference, and finally completed setting it up middle of June 09. My friends in the flats where I live have been very helpful, but I have lots to learn, so any advice gratefully received. my garden is north facing, so gets a little sun morning and evening. the only issue I still have to resolve is the ground, it is an assortment of concrete/tarmac, and has a number of drains and a big drain cover (which I have made a feature of by covering it in plants. I haven't been on here for such a long time. My health deteriorated, and I lost all interest in my garden, sadly. But earlier this year, I decided I really needed to get it overhauled. Found a lovely gardener who did a fantastic job, and now my interest has returned. I cannot do as much as I used to, but Daniel has made me a low maintenance garden, and he will come back 3 or 4 times a year to do whatever needs doing.
