One of my earliest memories is of picking radishes I had sown in an old greenhouse in our garden. Since then my love of gardening has grown into a passion for flowers that feeds my soul. I love to cut flowers for the house, and for friends, as much as enjoying them in the garden.
After giving up the ‘safe’ job to train as a garden designer, I cut my horticultural teeth at the fabulous Special Plants nursery run by Derry Watkins. Following this I completed an MA in Garden History at the University of Bristol with Professor Tim Mowl. The historical, architectural and garden knowledge gained from this course has informed, shaped and enriched my work ever since.
As all gardens are a work in progress so my learning and development continues and is enhanced by the people I meet through my research, tours, talks and design work.
