The Time Of My Life

Well the last few months have simply flown by and oh boy what a time I have had!

Firstly James and I went to Chelsea Flower Show courtesy of Amateur Gardening Magazine. It was an incredible day and not only did i get recognised I also got to meet Toby Buckland, who for some bizarre reason actually knew who I was? I blushed. A four page article in Amateur gardening followed all about my experience as a mobility scooter user trying to get around the show. There were a few hiccups and several bumps to negotiate but we made it through the day and escaped the horrendous down pour by a few minutes.

The second and most exciting thing to happen to me by far so far in my career as a gardener/writer is my upcoming appearance on GARDENERS' WORLD.

11th July 2014 9PM BBC 2  I make my first TV appearance

Filming in my garden was an incredible experience if not a bit surreal. I had to fight my giggles when I heard "action" and I had to wander about like no one was there, i soon settled into it though and even though I nearly boiled to death in the greenhouse so the lovely cameraman could get the best shots I truly truly loved every minute of the filming and Jo Robinson the Producer said I was a natural :):) Thanks Jo if Carol is ever busy you know where I am :)

Anyway as our gorgeous Campsis fell over last night I must dash and have a look and see if we can save it. Don't forget to tune in, or if you missed it there's always iplayer.

Happy gardening
