About me

I have enjoyed gardening ever since we bought our first house which had a postage stamp sized garden. I now live in a fairly rural location with a reasonably large plot, which looks out over fields and an apple orchard.
I'm fortunate in having a large conservatory where I like to grow some exotic house plants.
About 15 years ago, I returned to College and took a professional floristry course, and have worked in several Florists. I'm now working as an independent florist working from my workshop at home.
Have lived in our current home for 13 years and I feel privledged to be part of this wonderful rural community.
