Time for Santa Claus to take a little R&R, now that the night’s work is over. I hope that you have all been good little boys and girls this year and that Santa has left a suitable present under the tree. A pair of Felco secateurs, a subscription to Gardens Illustrated, a new shed?!

I’ve had a lot of fun creating the content for this website during the year and it has been rewarding to see how many folk look in and from so many far-flung parts of the world too – over 88 countries and counting. It truly is the World Wide Web.

Please let me wish you all the very best for the Christmas holidays and for a happy, healthy and bountiful New Year  – and an invitation to see what’s new from me in 2014 –Teddington Gardener
