About Me

I am a botanist with a passion for gardens and gardening.   I have 30 years experience in lecturing to clubs and societies, both in UK and abroad and have also given lectures in the University of Sheffield Division of Continuing Adult Education.

I am also a keen photographer, and particularly enjoy taking photos to use in my talks.

My other passion is family history, and I love researching the multitude of records available.
