About me

I live in Northampton - suburban garden light clay slightly acid.
Have been keen gardener from childhood - Grandfather a keen veg grower , I watched learned and carried on.

I like the Gertrude Jekyll style as it gives variety in large or small areas.

I grow tomatoes and cucumbers in greenhouse I like unusual small fruit trees I have mulberry which is about 7 years old and yealds very well. (although after picking I am covered in purple camouflage) also a quince tree which is very enteraining. I have a lot of variety in a small space 80ft x 40ft.

I enjoy all aspects of gardening as it gives a well-being effect that can be lacking in other aspects of life. Example motorways, supermarkets and the general hubbub of life -Good Heavens!

I think of my garden as Tiny Dixter a very small version of Great Dixter, which is superb. Though I have not got the ability of Lutyens or Christoper Lloyd. Always tip my cap to the great gardeners.
