GARDENING: THE GATEWAY TO PEACE AND TRANQUILITY
Passionate about plants
There are lots of case studies looking into the Health benefits of Gardening and I hope to share my experiences with you.
The list of plants in each section are ones I grow in my garden.
I just love being in our garden.
Some of my favorite plants are shown below:

Consists of a traditional back garden laid to lawn with hard landscaping, several seating areas and a summerhouse. Lots of pots and baskets.
The front garden from 2014 has been transformed into a tropical style garden and also has two fish ponds.
It is approximately 80 feet long and was designed by Jenny and I and constructed in 2008 including the summerhouse. The latter and two other out buildings were expertly built by Graig Osler of Rayleigh Carpentry.
In 2004 we designed and landscaped the front garden which included two interlocking Koi ponds.
This has become my pride and joy. An immense sense of satisfaction. It consists of Banana, Ginger, Canna, Colocasia, Ricinus, Gaillardia, Coreopsis, Asclepias, Zinnia, Alocasia, Helianthus, Rudbeckia, Helenium and many more. Please click on the More icon above for more information on these plants.
