This is the diary of my horticultural life tending my small garden in the beautiful city of Cambridge, as I aspire to create a plantswoman’s ‘retreat from the world’. I got the green-fingered bug twenty five years ago, and still have a great enthusiasm for this most engrossing and engaging of pastimes, which I hope to share.
I was an archivist for many years, but gave that up when I became the mother of two high energy boys. I am now a freelance gardener, and greatly enjoy the challenges and rewards of tending other people’s gardens on a professional basis as well as my own.
