NEXT COURSE: Starts Friday 22nd September 2017 , 9.30am- 11.30am. £90 per 10 week term.

My 10-week courses are designed to teach you a bit of everything you’re ever likely to want to know about gardening. We meet around my kitchen table every Friday morning for two hours of design tips, hands-on plants and planting, a good old gossip about garden designers and their rather steamy lives, garden history and the occasional garden visit (often to one of my current projects).

If you’re interested in joining my mailing list or would like to sign up for next term, drop me an email at


I offer a range of talks, from 1-2 hours, to W.I.s as well as gardening and social groups. All talks are packed with gardening knowledge, with a twist of humour thrown in.

Topics include: 

“Creating Gardens- a Garden Designer’s Portfolio”- how I design gardens, using ‘before and after’ images of my various design projects.

“Women in Gardening”- a look at the great women garden designers and their fascinating back-stories.
