Gardeners and Garden Services based in Devon
Now based in Exeter, I have been a professional garden designer for over twenty years, with a wide portfolio which includes gardens all over Devon and Somerset, as well as in London, Scotland and France. I completed the City & Guilds garden design module at Capel Manor, London and the intensive Garden Design course led by the internationally acclaimed designer John Brookes FSGD at East Lambrook Manor, passing both courses with Distinction.
I have qualifications in practical horticulture from Bicton and Cannington Colleges. I am working towards full membership of the Society of Garden Designers, the only national body for professional garden designers. I frequently lecture to Horticultural Societies. I have written for various publications including the Garden Design Journal, Grow It magazine, Good Homes magazine and as Garden Features writer for Ex1 magazine.
