  1. Hi, Thanks for leaving a comment on my blog – good to know another London gardener! Now that I’ve found my way here, I’ve subscribed via email so I’m sure you’ll be hearing more from me! Good luck with the kids’ gardening club – I know from experience that’s hard work but great fun – sometimes! 😉
