About me

Lived in West Sussex most of my life, married with 2 grown up children, 1 of each. Have a cat named Megan.

Love gardening, favourite flower Aquilegia, least favourite Grape Hyacinth ! Small suburban garden, clay soil which benefits from gravel added at each planting and plenty of 'muck' mulched in the Autumn.

National Trust member, love historical buildings and gardens.
