The Propagator

My plant obsession

About me

I am embracing my middle age with some resignation and slight sheepishness that things which I previously held in either contempt or sneering amusement are starting to appeal. Radio 2, folk music, peace and quiet are a few, and most pertinent to this blog, gardening. I am the dictionary definition of a rank amateur, I’m learning as I go.

When I’m not pottering in the greenhouse I enjoy a good movie, I run long distance, provide a taxi service to my family and what’s that other thing….oh yes, work.

I live in Reading, Berkshire  with my wife, the current Mrs J, and the kids who are many  in number (propagation again, see, theme developing….).
