London (change)


About me:I am a gardener who has to curb any inclination toward hard landscaping jobs. My Dad was a very inspiring landscape gardener, so I tend to overstretch myself. I have illnesses now that prevent that sort of thing, but you know how it is when you are more keen than is good for you. So I concentrate on smaller projects, and you can't get smaller than collecting and germinating plants and trees seeds. My thirst for new plant is restricted by finances and space, though I make a good deal of headway by planting things in old mushroom cartons and the flower buckets that a few supermarkets still throw out. As far as these buckets go, I can just about lift a full one without doing myself an injury, and I am a wizz with a drill to make drainage. It's such a good plan that I really shouldn't be telling anyone about it cause you'll all be at it. Anyway, there you go, at least they will be recycled across the world now...Also, I am collecting roses from around the world. Seeds of course, since shipping would be very difficult. I am doing a "roses around the world" garden for a retreat run by some amaizing nuns - great fun! If any rose growers happen to read this, and have unusual species rose seeds that I don't happen to have already, I will pay hansomely for them.Cheers to you all
more coming soon...
