My site is all about the plants which we have grown over many years. Mainly in our Aberdeen garden where we have spent most of our lives.
In 2013 we moved to Cheshire, created a very pleasant garden and then an option and urge to return to Scotland arose in 2017. Now, we are living in a bungalow in a small village in East Fife. It's a new house, creating even a small garden from scratch is hard work but satisfying, guess what, we have already discovered how to increase our garden space.
Although it is undoubtedly cooler here than it was in Cheshire, we do definitely get more sunshine and the plants seem to be coming away very nicely.
I am not a professional gardener, however, I have had many years experience as an enthusiastic amateur. If you have any gardening queries contact me through any of my posts or contact page and I will be keen in trying to help out.
