Gloucestershire Organic Gardeners

We took our macs with us to Poulton this evening, for a garden visit organised by the Gloucestershire Organic Gardening Group (GOGG) of which I am a somewhat passive member. In fact, it turned out fine, and indeed there was a memorable sunset over the Vale as we returned via Leckhampton Hill. Mike and Stella's one-third of an acre back garden is only lacking in one thing: a lawn. For this there is absolutely no space. But it is crammed with cultivation of every other kind, raised beds jam packed with brassicas, carrots and leeks; a greenhouse full of tomatoes, peppers, grapes etc. and room for dozens of different clematis and even the odd sunflower (as shown here).
