Mike who lives in Sprotborough, is Chairman of the Yorkshire Group of Cottage Gardens and has travelled widely throughout Europe working in many large gardens. Mike took the Garden Club members on a journey, as he converted a garden belonging to a house he had bought, from a pile of rubble, into a lovely cottage garden. Mike illustrated his talk with many slides. Mike’s definition of a cottage gardener is ‘Someone who does not like to see Muck!’
