About me
Lifelong gardener and former biomedical scientist with a Garden Design Diploma from Capel Manor. I have experience of developing and maintaining gardens on clay, chalk, acid and loamy soils. Now using my knowledge, skills and experience to coach others!

Gardening expertise

Biggest gardening accomplishments
After detailed discussion with clients, I work with them to produce mood boards, 3D images, a Master plan, including construction drawings, and planting plans as required. I have planted and maintained gardens in Sussex on clay, in Bucks on chalk, on acid soil in Norfolk, in addition to my own in Hertford. I have helped several peoplein Bucks, Hertford, Hatfield, Cambridge and Norwich develop their gardens. I propagate a variety of shrubs and perennials.

Biggest gardening frustrations
The mature wood at the top of my steep back garden casts shadow on southeast facing garden for much of the day, but I've turned that into an opportunity for growing some shade loving species.

The gardening project I am currently working on
Developing master plan for the redesign of a large garden surrounding a historic thatched cottage garden in a small village in Bedfordshire.
