About me

I live in Leicestershire and have a small garden as I was never really keen on gardening at the time of purchase. I have since become enlightened and have modified greatly the garden created by the original owner of the house.

What I didnt realise was that I had actually bought 2 houses with the 2nd house being buried in pieces throughout the garden.... all I had to do was dig it up !!

Since then I have planted a combination of Azaleas, Rhoddies, 3 types of Choiysas, climbing roses, Lavender, Kalmia and Akebia interspersed with common perennials.

Ive made a few mistakes along the way (Clematis Montana being one - way too vigourous !!) and I need to cut back hard on a few things this year as their is too much encroachment going on.
