In 2006 I purchased a home in the western suburbs of Melbourne where there is a very rich clay soil and I started my own garden which now comprises 120 roses. The garden could be described as a "cottage garden" with a variety of lavendar, hydrangeas, rosemary, clematis, penstemon, ground covers, liliums and other plants and bulbs. I have also recently established a vegetable and herb section which is producing very well. The roses are my special interest and I have catalogued each rose with growing notes and accompanying photographs. More recently I am turning my attention to raising clematis which are not all that common in Melbourne and have already been rewarded with some beautiful blooms.
