Im getting old, can't run the 100 metres anymore, volunteer a lot, care for old mum and "parent" to my niece, am passionate almost obsessive about plants and, like, Monty have a dog plodding around the garden. Am bit contentious, argumentative, dogged and mischievous....like to "stir" a bit!
Garden in mild sw of Cornwall and grow a lot of tender plants.....cannas, salvias, etc. but not into exotic plants like agaves (too sharp) bananas (never seen one without its leaves shredded halfway during the growing season) . Always trying new plants. Lots,of hellebores, salvias, echinaceas, agastaches, and ornamental grasses (so under rated and under used). Grow veg, fruit. and have small pool in a medium sized garden.
