at home in the garden

July 2021 move to a neglected garden in Derbyshire with a 3-pronged design plan – potted cottage frontage, East meets West Japanesque style at rear, with native & Japanese woodlanders beyond.

For many years I was a gardener without roots, so my garden only ever consisted of potted peripatetics that had to move and adapt to several locales with different aspects. It taught me a lot!

I’d lost track of how many plants I have, those that failed to materialize or those I pushed into over-optimistic places against all their inclinations. The plant register sets the record straight and keeps it so!
