About me

I live in south London with my husband, where we have a very small front garden (about 4m x 4.5m) and a big white cat who loves to sunbath on flowerbeds! When I moved here in 2006 I had no gardening experience at all, I started by digging a small border and planting a load of violas - I was hooked. Since then I have put in a L-shaped rasied bed, filled it with perennials, climbers, ferns, grasses and annuals, planted up loads of containers,'lollipopped' the exsisting Virburnum Tinus and turned my kitchen into a greenhouse! I also help an elderly neighbour with his little border.

I love gardening and make the most of the small space I have, am just starting out on growing from seed this year - so fingers crossed.
