Good things about Cambridge/Norfolk/Lincoln borders; roses and plant auctions. Some good independent plant nurseries; I hate the big rip-off chains. A lot of people here love growing veg, so at any social gathering you can usually find a fellow veg bore! Loads of horses in the neighbourhood, so loads of manure. My soil is fairly alkali and in areas a sticky clay. I have never heard anyone complain about the soil, but we can have problems with lack of rain; we are in a dry corridor east of Cambridge.
