About me

Hello everyone
I have loved gardening ever since I was little, I don't go out to work anymore as i hurt my back about 6 years ago so i like to do a lot of my veg growing in raised beds. I have two westies one likes to dig the other one doesn't. My husband and i also have a smallish orchard which we are re-stocking as the trees are about 60years old although still fruiting we are just adding to them,with more apples plums, greengages (i make jam) and cider apples.
I have also just started to grow xmas trees and grow plants for the local 'open gardens' charity.
Forgot to add i have 3 lovely daughters, who have all left home now, so i get to play in their gardens now as well.
