This is a blog about a garden in Wanganui, New Zealand. It is called "The Upside-Down Garden" because New Zealand is one of those places referred to by northern hemisphere folk as "Down Under" as in "At the Bottom of the World". It follows that any garden "Down Under" must therefore be upside-down.
No, it will not fall off.
The purpose of this blog is to provide a diary of significant happenings in my garden. I say "my garden" because in this household gardening is the province of the one who doesn't do a great deal of cooking (although he loves it), washing, office management and computer maintenance. Those things are the province of the one who doesn't do any gardening, plant breeding or nursery work. That one is Janice, my extremely lovely wife, friend, counsellor and lifetime partner who I love most dearly.
The other purpose of this blog is to separate out the gardening and nursery aspects of my other blog (although they will still be there too) "Delphiniums Down Under", so that they can be viewed more widely in the gardening community without the said garden community personages being distracted by the day to day family life of a family they have no interest in at all. Anyone who wishes to be so personally voyeuristic should follow Delphiniums Down Under. They should also seek prompt psychiatric help.
So that's about it. Let's see if it works.
