Just in case you think I'm a gardening busy body who hovers around forums dishing out advice willy nilly, I thought I should introduce myself properly.
My name's Amanda (obviously) and I've been writing the Trends section on this website for Homebase for the last 18 months. I'm a writer and garden designer, and I've been gardening myself for around 15 years. My real passion is for growing vegetables and fruit on my 6 x 11m veg patch. I live in Peckham - which isn't the urban desert the media would have you believe, but a very green and leafy place with lots of gardens and award-winning honey no less - and have a fairly large (by London standards) east- and south-facing garden.
I'm constantly changing the plants in my borders and can never quite seem to get it right - it's a case of cobbler's shoes I'm afraid... I make other people's gardens look gorgeous, but am perhaps over critical of my own.
Nevermind. A gardener can never truly finish their garden :o)
