About me

48 yr old female 'amateur' but promising gardener.

I used to have an allotment~ BEFORE it became trendy, but had to give it up for personal reasons.

nowadays I take great pleasure in my own garden which has become my haven.

I enjoy visiting gardens of all kinds, large or small, public or private and attend BBC Gardeners world show in King's Heath every Sept. I love the bargains there.

I now have a new space at the bottom of my garden since my daughter's mini stox has been sold and I want to make it a relaxing kind of 'patio' area for when people come round. It's cemented and so I need ideas as to how to make it look attractive.
