About me

I live with my OH in central Scotland. I like flowering shrubs because they were easy to look after when I was working but having been retired for a long time I gradually became interested in Hardy perennials. More recently I have discovered a new passion for alpine and rockery plants. Flowering bulbs are an endless source of pleasure. I am gradually adding to the list of bulbs I grow. I am a member of Suntrap Gardening Club and run a web site for them. I am also a member of the Scottish Rock Garden Club. Both clubs have been very educational for me and inspired me to grow things I would not have attempted in the past.
