What's it All About?

Well, it's about as much of My Family, My Friends, My Life and its Events, as I can recall and cram in . . . .
On this website I introduce myself, 'The Toynes', my family and their lives, as well as my life and our photographs from more than 70 years - 40 of them hiding in the shrubbery . . .

 

FIRST: A Whole Life

The Toynes, My Life, My Family and Our Travels - That's a 'Me & Mine' click.

 

THEN: A Life in Horticulture

Gardens, Plants, Techniques, Styles, Features, Wildlife - Good & Bad -  and Ideas . . . this is where you'll find my latest photos to look at and use. Yes, USE!


I look forward to reading your comments in the 'About You' (that's 'you' NOT me!) and 'Get In Touch' Sections!

For several years I have been putting together a Family Tree for our Branch of the Toynes in Lincolnshire and elsewhere in the world (I have two children and further offspring in Australia and Glenna has umpteen cousins in America) - However, I must admit to being neither very good nor very consistent in my efforts and have resolved to look elsewhere for information and history than just the Web! Time permitting, I'll put this into practice soon . . .

What's Wrong?

Even in the best run garden things can go wrong - pests attack, diseases get hold, the weather strikes and, heaven forfend, gardeners may even make mistakes.

The secret of beating this avalanche of ailments is recognising them, or more often the damage they cause - and sorting the Bad from the Good and the Ugly . . .  because most things that look as though they may be the devil's own work are actually harmless or even beneficial! (Or even things you can't do a lot about, like the Weather!)

 

"Kill as few things as possible - in life as well as in the garden." Has always been my motto.
