Honest Scrap Award
Tim kindly tagged me aaaaaages ago with this Honest Scrap award which I've been ages in responding to (sorry Tim). I'm supposed to tell you ten things you don't know about me and tag a few of you, but seeing as I'll be away for a few days, I thought I'd mess around with the format a bit and have a little fun. No-one's going to be tagged - so you can come back, it's safe to continue reading - and there are 10 gardening (ish) things listed below which you probably don't know about me. Here's the twist, 3 of them aren't true. Can you guess which ones they are? Leave your answers in the comments and I'll tell you when I get back...
I've been to a reception at Highgrove followed by a guided tour of the gardens with Prince Charles
I have a piece of Welsh hillside named after me - planted with 1,000 trees
My ultimate horticultural ambition is to have enough land for a proper orchard
I have a plant named after me - a rather lovely Clematis
I've appeared on Gardeners' World alongside Carol Klein, Joe Swift and Rachel de Thame
The garden I'd love to visit above all others is The Alhambra in Spain
When I was little the garden feature I wanted most was a bouncy castle
I've been invited onto a Chelsea show garden for a chat with the designer
I've had a 10 minute chat with Prince Charles about controlling slugs
I have a degree in Horticulture from Newcastle University
That's it - see you when I get back. ABC Wednesday will be here as usual with something I'm hoping I won't be using on holiday!
