As the Graduate Trainee at the RHS Lindley Library Wisley I still have masses to learn about horticulture and libraries. I make new discoveries every day and it is exciting to be able to share some of my findings through the blogs.

I am particularly enjoying cataloguing the RHS bursary reports which detail various individuals' adventures across the world, sometimes in countries I didn’t even know existed.

On a rainy day I love nothing more than to snuggle up with a good book and a cup of tea. I am always interested to see how flora can be used to create an alternative reality or to symbolise some grand theme.
