About me
Starting my green fingered nature off in the depths of Suffolk it perhaps isn’t any surprise that I’m a little hippyish. My mother was always gardening, and I soon acquired a little patch in the 3/4 acre Vicarage garden to call my own. A pond, a plant, a small tree later and I was hooked and whilst I may not have been the most attentive gardener, my green roots had been started. Moving to London to go to uni, I studied Zoology and Marine Biology, before finding myself in a dead-end job with no escapism. Three long years (if felt like decades) later, and my personality all but crushed by the 9-5 dread that society puts us in, I quit and started gardening full-time. The allotment came my way, then the chickens. Clients started flooding in, and I spent many, many happy hours pruning, mowing, clipping. I was outside, I was free of my air conditioned cubicle. Life is GREAT!

Biggest gardening accomplishments
I currently run a landscape design and maintenance company in the suburbs of London on the edge of Essex. Whether a total re-design is needed or simply the lawn cut and shrubbery tidied then I'm happy to help. I specialise in reinvigorating tired gardens and making landscaping changes that won’t break the bank but will allow for full enjoyment of the garden. Meanwhile I also work in the TV industry, especially for ITV’s ‘This Morning’ programme as their behind the scenes garden expert, write and share gardening knowledge and am involved with the RHS in spreading garden creativity and inspiration. So my biggest gardening accomplishment is manaing to turn my passion and hobby into my career :)

The gardening project I am currently working on
Building: www.theguidetogaygardening.com and continuing to spread horticultural inspiration through word of mouth, media and green fingeredness
