I would class my gardening skills as 'emergent'. I am very much enjoying the new found experience of planting things and watching them grow 😊

Thanks @jeatacake 😊 - stays out uncovered in the ground over winter and seems fine so far (3 × winters like that so far)

I reckon it's worth experimenting; lots of plants that are reported to be tender actually seem quite robust (and sometimes visa versa) 🙃
