The Shoemakers Garden blog has had a rather chequered history one way and another.  Its first life was as a blog attached to a previous garden website, now defunct since I moved from its location on  Tayside, to Norfolk.  Shoe Makers Cottage, at Dickleborough, is where my present garden is, and it is a great deal smaller and easier to cope with. The cottage is small, mid eighteenth century, and originally (it is believed) the home and shop of a cobbler.

As before, the primary function of the pages is to be an aide memoire for me of planned planting and projects to tackle, a record of plants and activity that I may need to refer back to, and a collection of notes and pictures that I may want to make use of at some point.  It also records what has interested me on visits to other gardens.

It will welcome any comments, contributions and advice from friends.
