She’s fast, incredibly fast. She’s a dab paw at nicking things. So much so I have just bought a gardening apron to circumvent her efforts. She likes a cuddle, but also likes jumping over things and sitting on overwintering lavender so it messes with the shape I’ve cut it to. She is quite the best little girl there is.


Gardening is surely an ideal profession for the woman who likes it. The work is not so heavy as to put too great a strain on her physical capacity; and in the more expert branches the possibilities and range of interest is really unlimited



I don’t currently have availability for ongoing work, but I am working on some designs for the new season so if you think I can be of help, please do get in touch. I will be sure to let you know in no time at all if I have some extra capacity. February 2020


My father used to say there was no such thing as can’t so I do try to say yes to everything, but at a push I would say that two feet on the ground is generally better for all and I do have specialists I can call on to do the other stuff. For instance an amazing chap who does hedges and fencing, and a mower chap who takes great pride in his work


I use specialists for many of the jobs that require specific kit and expertise. I will be updating this list as I go along, having recently killed my website by mistake


I have no hesitation in recommending Tree Frog Services. They are very professional, easily contactable on text, email and phone and have really invested in the kit needed to get the job done. They also obviously have great contacts for the more esoteric stuff.
