About me

I live in the beautiful Pewsey Vale in Wiltshire and can see the Marlborough Downs and White Horse from my back garden. I started gardening after taking voluntary redundancy from an office job I'd been doing for 21 years. As I wasn't working I thought I would sort out my garden and then realised I knew nothing about gardening so I went and did the RHS General course and loved every minute. I then did a 1 year practical training course with the The Womans Farm & Garden Association which gave me the confidence to get out there and have a go. I now work part time and have my own clients.
