Geoff, well spotted on posting too much. I thought the same too, Good comment!
I can't start calling you Benny then?
When I first started gardening with a very small patch, I grew the things that my father had grown. I started my current garden in the 80s, an overgrown bit of hillside that used to be a field and it has become a cottage garden. I suppose it is mutli-decade as fashions in plants have come and gone, but I don't like to get rid of plants. I still have a blue fence but it is a little patchy nowadays.
Geoff, you didn't wear a knitted hat did you?
