Welcome to my blog!
After being a property lawyer for nearly 20 years I decided to take some time off to write………and ended up gardening! Reluctantly at first but as my flowers and veg started to grow I caught the bug.
I had to start from scratch with only the odd pearl of wisdom from an elderly relative to go on. As a lawyer my first port of call was to read as many books as I could. However, advice was contradictory, confusing or assumed a certain level of knowledge to start with – perennial anyone?
I just got stuck in and much of what I grew was by trial and error. So as we approach a new growing season I thought I would create this blog to share my triumphs, disasters, hints and tips in the hope that whether you only have 5 minutes a week and a window box for a garden or whether you’re Monty Don or Jim McCall, together we can de-mystify this gardening lark.
