This is a record of my small (50’x20′) housing estate garden based in Gloucestershire ,the flowers I grow in it and coping with Clay soil.I mainly grow herbs,white Flowers & scented flowers .Organic- hence the latin name of the blog    Hortus=Garden & Viridis= Green .I like to encourage wildlife .We have birds nesting in the bay tree (Blackbirds) bats ,hedgehogs,frogs and toads,and many different garden  birds visiting not to mention many varieties of butterflies ,moths & insects.All pictures of flowers included have to be grown in my garden and photographed by myself or member of my family
