My thanks to those of you who have read my column over the past year, it’s been so much fun to write, and I have learnt quite a lot of new details about some of the plants myself! Thank you also if you’ve bought my little book, I do hope that you are enjoying dipping into it from time to time.

For those of us who have gardens, how extra lucky we’ve been during the pandemic, to have this outside space to immerse ourselves in. Have a good Christmas, and let’s hope for a brighter year ahead for everyone.
