Do you grow food, flowers,native or ornamental?
I'm really a flower gardener at heart and have a deep love of our wild and native flowers. But we have some salad crops and herbs and this year are trying some blackcurrants, redcurrants and raspberries as well as the alpine strawberries I always grow.
Most inspiring garden designer/thinker/personality?
So difficult to choose, but probably Beth Chatto. For her encyclopaedic knowledge, integrity, artistry and utter devotion to plants. www.bethchatto.co.uk And all her books are wonderful!
What plants do you dislike?
That black ugly thing so gangly - aeonium. Double-double versions of simple things like primroses and daisies. And I can't summon up any enthusiasm for cactus....
