Welcome back HTUK

My garden history!

Boom boom! :-)

I’ve still got all the photos on my phone but this site has changed so much that I don’t know how to add photos etc anymore. All my posting is done by iPhone now as I don’t have a computer.

My garden history!

Hi Jim and Thanks! Thank you Graham. It’s a real shame that the blog is missing the exciting bits of the gardens construction but I’m thankful that I didn’t lose the lot! The Tetrapanax were well behaved until last year. I’d probably pull out about 10 suckers a year but last year I must have pulled ...

My garden history!
