Gardening on a slope doesn't stop Janice Alder from piecing together a beautiful backyard.

"Here are some photos of my cottage style garden in Rickmansworth Hertfordshire.  As you can see I garden on a slope which can be challenging but just as exciting as it gives opportunities for different vistas and elevations for planting. I entertain a great deal and have several seating areas to ensure there's somewhere to sit and relax should the sun shine.  I allow a lot of plants to self seed - particularly the moon daisies which originate from one plant bought approximately 20 years ago."
