I write a monthly column for a magazine called Cirencester Scene. I decided to make the commitment to produce articles for Cirencester Scene, because I wanted the challenge and enjoyment of having to regularly focus on and discuss a horticultural or design issue. It also gives me the opportunity to talk to a wide range of people whose perspective and points of view I probably would never have considered otherwise.  I welcome comments and questions regarding my articles, so please feel free to write to me at
