I'm a homebird at heart, and I like making things, gardening, and reading. I live in the middle of England, with my husband Joe, I volunteer with Girl Guiding UK and work for my local library service. I'm intent on dragging home the contents of the local charity shops, and to be honest I also spend a large amount of my time sitting on the sofa watching Netflix!
I am a free-
My recommendation is to carry a camera,notebook,a pair of niwaki secateurs and a good waterproof at all times.
I particularly enjoy writing short blogs with as many images of my working week as is possible.
If you’ve read my blog, I hope it’s quite apparent that I adore writing. Especially when it’s all about gardens. I particularly love exploring new gardens, hearing their story from the owners and articulating exactly what it is that makes this particular garden unique and special. Why it works so well.
I mostly write for magazines and can also provide photographs. A recent commission I completed was an 11-
It’s strange to think but until 2007 I had no interest allotment gardening. I had no interest in gardening at all.

After considerable blog chat, comments and email exchanges perhaps it’s time I revealed a little about the person behind shirls gardenwatch. However, first, I have to say a HUGE THANK-
My first reveal is that although my blog is titled shirls, it is not how I am known outside the blogging world. I picked this name for a little bit of anonymity and because it was short and slightly quirky for leaving comments etc. Let me introduce myself… Hello, my name is Shirley :-

My name is Thomas Stone and I have been a professional horticulturist since 1989. I am based in Hampshire where I run my own company, specialising in Garden Consultancy, Roses Wild life gardening and pruning .I am still learning so much about plants, gardens and materials. With my blog and working website now separated, I am hoping to explore my love of plants and gardens, looking at each month a garden, some of the tasks in the months ahead, tools that I like using, materials I use within my day to day work and of course some of the beautiful plants that I love to both look at and enjoy seeing in gardens
OK, the country cottages get a plug but most of this blog is about gardening and nature in the South of Finland.
I’m Nick, an avid gardener and amateur naturalist living in the central piedmont of North Carolina, USA. I’m more of a plant collector than a landscaper, so expect lots of pictures of individual plants, carefully cropped to hide the weeds and piles of old flower pots. When not digging in the garden, I work as a researcher in a developmental neurobiology lab to make enough money to buy truckloads of mulch.

Several years ago, my husband and I returned from our annual sojourn to Maui and decided we had to get the heck out of the big city. So, he retired and we relocated to the Treasure Coast.
Hello, welcome to my blog all about my terraced garden in the West Midlands. My approach to gardening has always been to give a plant a good start but then let it fend for itself, or to sort of quote quote Rocky, ‘if it dies, it dies’.
Now, I’m turning over a new leaf, I’m going to get organised and see if I can create a beautiful garden on a bit of a budget. I’m going to grow as much as I can from seed and try out some things I’ve never grown before.
