Hi

hmmm the potting shed?  Was that among the greenhouses within the walled garden?  If so it was sold before our time and is partly fallen down.  I do have an old photo but it isn't very clear.  You may know Norman Pitts he visited us last year, his dad used to be the gardener. 

If you want to send me an email address I can see about scanning the old pic and send some new ones too.  I don't know if you remember this time of year... thousands of daffodils and only slightly fewer baby rabbits!

Regards

Martin

Hi Martin
so pleased to see your reply, thought it was possible you would never see my post. I was going to write (but wondered if you would think I was weird !)
The potting shed was attached to the garden wall and there was 2 greenhouses inside wall immediately next to it. Used to all be painted dark green. One greenhouse on the right was for geraniums (still recall the scent on a hot day) & other was mixed but there was a bird of paradaise plant, very exciting to a small child.
Was his Dad Dan? That is who my mum use to help out.
Yes please do send pics. Email is linzibuckmaster  at gmail dot com
best wishes  Linzi
