“I have always loved nature and spending time outdoors. I have an interest in wild flowers and love going for walks in the countryside. I like visiting gardens to learn more about plants and get ideas.

I took on an allotment 4 years ago and enjoy spending time there growing vegetables, fruit, herbs and flowers. My interest in gardening has grown from there and I enjoy working part time in garden maintenance. I enjoy helping to improve people’s gardens to make the best of the space. I enjoy all aspects of gardening, particularly planting new plants, pruning shrubs and weeding. I am looking forward to doing more gardening with Grayshaw and Yeo and learning more about horticulture.”
