About me

Four years ago, I volunteered to maintain our house's tiny, east facing front garden, in Camberwell, South London.

Not only is it east facing, it is also covered by gravel, on top of concrete, which doesn't really help growing stuff on.

As years passed and I added more pots and more plants, I realised how much I loved tending a garden.

Having grown up in a Parisian suburb, I didn't know much about gardens until I moved in London, five years ago. I fell in love with English gardening here and there.

I am simply trying *not to kill* my plants, having little experience in growing plants outdoors... other than in my grandmother's vegetable garden when I was little.

Last year, I quit my job as a Graphic Designer to do the RHS level 2 in Horticulture, and it completely changed my life.

My dream is that one day I will have a real garden!
