About my garden: In my garden I grow a mixture of trees, shrubs and herbaceous plants. I love sourcing new and rare plants and experimenting with plants that are tender. My latest plant is Isoplexus Isabellianus which is a type of foxglove and Isoplexus sceptrum which I grew from seed.
More about me: I love gardening. My only regret is that I did not garden when I was young. I spend a lot of time in the garden and also, dare I say in this recessionary time quite a bit of money! I garden on a slope with a lovely view of the river Lee. My garden is in quite a mild area and though last winter was an exception I rarely get a bad frost. I belong to two garden clubs.
