About me

I'm a gardener, both for myself and for a small business that I run, but must admit that I do prefer to do my own gardening because I'm in complete control then! I'm currently working on planting my front and back gardens as well as planning for my (probably now too big) allotment. I have also worked for a commercial grower helping analyse glasshouse production and have RHS qualifications.
I love the idea of self sufficiency and keep chickens and ducks in my back garden. I care for them and in return get some great tasting eggs!
