About me

Retired on South Coast and about 100 yards from the Beach. So as you can imaging with strong sea breezes and salt in the air some plants can have a pretty hard time. My back garden is about 36 feet long and is a matter of trial and error with emphasis on the error. As a small garden it is just right for its true function, that of sitting out on a sunny day with a glass of wine and reading a good book.
I am currently repainting the front door and with that in mind I plan to re-do the so called front garden. The plan is for slabs set in pebbles with a two seater bench facing out towards the west (afternoon sun) and many plants in pots. (The bench can also accomodate two people each with a glass of wine).
