About me:I am an 85 year old widow who has been gardening since the age of 5. I have seven children and seven grandchildren and a half acre of wildlife friendly garden stuffed with plants, ornamental and useful as I love freshly picked fruit and veg. and have fed a family of nine on them years ago. Now I am a volunteer gardener once a week in the Bristol University botanic garden and give talks and open my garden to clubs. I am the Hon. secy of the local Bristol group of the Alpine garden Society and help with many charities by running plant stalls. My garden gives me great pleasure and, now being aged, I am venturing out on the No-Dig method of cultivation. 2013 is the year I add a wildlife pond and meadows, both annual and perennial to my half acre of garden rooms. n 2012 I added a potager with eight raised beds to make growing my own veg. a little easier.
more coming soon...
