I still call myself by the epithet of where in London I lived and gardened for a quarter of a century.

March 2019: A move North to South Yorkshire, after having sold many plants and left others behind. Even so I still had a significant assortment of potted plants and trees and these I dotted around a spacious walled garden.

December 2019: Another house move. A much smaller rental property so the potted garden was slotted into a pocket-sized gravelled area. Just enough space to accommodate all plants with room for just a few extras.

July 2021: Settling down in Derbyshire, still with most of the potted plants. Watch this space as I turn a neglected back garden into a well-ordered Japanese style garden! And there’s room on the front ‘Derbyshire Dais’ for other plants – a potted cottage garden!
