My love of gardening came from mam, as she tended her small terraced garden. I can clearly remember her love of dahlias, roses, sweet peas and marigolds.
Cultivated plants are preferred to plants that thrive “in the wild”. Hence, gardeners try to eliminate anything they feel does not fit in with their view of the world.
