A Flower Arrangers Garden
Chrissie certainly knows her plants A previous winner of the Redditch Best Garden Competition, Chrissie is now a judge of the competition. Small wonder then that this site has so much to interest gardeners and great tips about flower conditioning and arranging. It is simply terrific. After a few exchanges of emails I had to confess to Chrissie that I didnt know whether to salute or bow. It is THAT good!

Martyn Gleadens garden in Wath-Upon-Dearne, South Yorkshire. This one puzzled me for some time after I found it, as there was no evidence on the site as to the webmaster. I posted the link asking for info.
Eventually I received an email from Martyn. Heres an extract from his email:
I think the main secret to the garden is wildlife. As we feed birds and hedgehogs all year round we have a thriving Wren,
Backbird, Tit, Sparrow and Thrush population. Between the birds and the hedgehogs we have no aphid or slug/snail problems, and I have to use no chemicals

Chrysanthemums in Aberdeen Paul Barlow’s fantastic resource, a must for for anyone growing or showing Chrysanthemums. Photos, cultural information, Cultivars list, and if you are in the UK, you can buy plants at a very reasonable price.

Finca Limoneros. Sherill and Keith’s Garden in Southern Spain
an English lady who now lives in Southern Spain, made contact in response to my plea for photo contributions for my web site. By sheer co-incidence, I had
just returned (Sept 05) from a very enjoyable holiday in Malaga, Spain (Sept 05) with 100+ photos of flowers and gardens to sort out. Sherill has offered to help
me identify a few of the “mystery plants”. As you will see on this web site, Sherill and Keith have a wide selection of plants growing in their garden
which in most cases are very different to those grown in England, and Sherill likes to research their botanical names.
Both the garden and the web site is
a great team effort by this couple.
This house and garden is something most of us dream of. Paradise! Enjoy!
