I have a super job as Library Manager for the Lindley Libraries. I’m based at RHS Garden Wisley, and also work at Lindley Library London most weeks. I’m keen to give an insight into our wonderful collections of books, art, photographs and archives and show how the libraries can enrich your enjoyment and knowledge of gardening. I love that we meet all kinds of people in the libraries – from enthusiastic children, beginning gardeners, knowledgeable amateurs, students and professional gardeners. I worked in specialist health and finance libraries before joining the RHS in 2004, and I’m delighted that I am now able to combine my love of books, art and plants!
