Hi all, new here, but not new to forums (oh no !). Just popped in here to say hello.

I am now semi retired (from the electronics and computer trades). We live in the W.Midlands in a small bungalow in the countryside (in a village called Malpas). I have been a "gardener" at every place I have lived, but am no expert. However I hope to be able to share some of my experiences as well as ask questions

Looking forward to talking to you all,

John (and the other half, Gill)
