I have been a keen amateur gardener for twenty years, but in 2015 I decided to also make it my career. I completed the RHS Level 2 in Horticulture at Reaseheath College and started gardening professionally in January 2016. I had previously completed a course in vegetable production and worked voluntarily at a garden nursery. I have also worked part-time at two garden centres.
Although not formally qualified in design, over the years I have designed and built three gardens for myself incorporating perennial flower borders, a pond, fruit and veg, managed wild areas, raised beds, hedging, trees and shrubs of interest, bulbs, climbers and compost heaps.
My main passion is growing and propagating. Since moving to Anglesey in 2017, I have been fortunate enough to be able to diversify and start growing cut flowers, herbs and fruit for sale locally. I garden organically, and I enjoy growing as much produce from seed and cuttings as possible. I am a member of Flowers from the Farm, a collective of flower farmers and florists who are dedicated to promoting the growth and use of seasonal British flowers.
