at home in the garden

For many years I’ve been a gardener without roots, so my garden consisted of potted peripatetics. A move to Derbyshire in July 2021 offers permanence and the space and opportunity for a novel garden design that crosses East with West.


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. This blog is designed to set the record straight and keep it so!


What’s on in My Japanesque Garden

Rocking up

Weeding and turning the rockery ‘quarry’ into two terraces and doing some autumn seed sowing

Stepping down

Greenhouse fully glassed, some steps down on the north side of the ‘rockery’ and a wormery platform
