As awkward as I find using this page for explicit self promotion (and I specify ‘explicit’, as what can a blog be but self-promotion of some kind or other?…), I’m committed to the success of the Woodend Winter Arts Festival, at which I’m speaking in a few weeks (Sunday June 11), being interviewed by journalist

Back on the 4th April, I gave a quick run down on my latest bit of trial planting of very low plants. I almost gave up on it in early spring, when it looked like being overrun with weeds, and I started to move taller stuff in. But a couple of friends stayed my hand, and insisted I stick to the plan. I’m glad they did, and that I had the good sense to listen to them.
A couple of years back my mother-in-law gave me the best present ever – a gift voucher from a bulb supplier. In this case, Marcus Harvey’s Hillview Rare Plants.
