Fun in the garden, the perfect place for passion


I can't understand anyone who enjoys living in a flat without a garden. I have friends who live in penthouse suites. Opulent residences to some, but to me they are as lacking and devoid of soul as a piece of motorway furniture.

I take care for two gardens. My front garden and my back garden. Note that I take care of them rather than own them. We are simply the guardians of this land for those who are yet to be born.

I try to apply organic gardening principles to my garden. That is I don't use pesticides, fungicides or artificial fertilizers. Oh yes, and I don't buy peat-based compost.

This year the gardens have done really well. Fertilised by the local cats, foxes and a lot of home-made compost.

The only minor disapointment has been the dual apple that I have. Two apple trees grafted together for better fruit crop. Sadly the ants like the tree so I'm looking for an ant-resistant alternative.

for next year I intend to develop a large raised bed of herbs and spices. Any suggestions for what plants I should try to grow. Remember the British climate is damp for most of the year and I'd like something that thrives on adversity

Don't ever give up searching for the fun in life.

I tried that but local cats ate the whole lot.
