Hello and welcome to the archives section!  My name is Rosie Nixon and I'm the gardener, writer, photographer and artist behind the garden gate at Have you any questions about gardening or photography? You'll find many of the answers in the archives as you click on each of the thumbnails. You can also type keywords into the search bar at the very top of the website. 
This page also acts as my 404 page whenever you click on a link that doesn't exist OR one that has been deleted. This blog is nearly 10 years old and over the years I have deleted lots of the earlier articles and photos, which might explain why a search engine has brought you to this page. I'm really sorry if you've been directed here from another page and you can't find what you're looking for. However, please get in touch if you have a specific question or inquiry. I'd really appreciate it. Although it might take a day or two for me to reply depending on my schedule.

I worked in the horticultural business for over 18 years and as a result, I worked with a wide variety of plants. You can adapt much of what you'll read here to your own garden. There are also tutorials about photography on the blog but not as many as I'd wish. Time restraints and weeding have prevented me from making the photography section as large as I'd like.

So stick around and enjoy digging into my archives!

When you're done head over and like my Facebook page leavesnbloom photos. I regularly share interesting pictures from gardens across the world and the beautiful array of wildflowers and wildlife that you can discover while traveling. In fact, you can message me there too about queries on plants, gardening, and photography. Or even join in the conversation. I hope to see you there!
