I continue to study ferns and enjoy being a Horticulturist
My love of gardening began when I became the proud owner of my first garden 11 years ago; a neglected, postage stamp-sized courtyard with a little raised border. It was surprising that, with a little imagination, spade loads of enthusiasm and a bit of experimentation what could be accomplished; a beautiful, delightful garden – I was hooked and haven’t looked back!
To begin with, I worked in nurseries and garden centres gaining experience whilst acquiring a number of NVQ and RHS qualifications leading to the opportunity to train as a student at Rosemoor for one year.
I have since continued my career at Rosemoor for the past six years and love working in Lady Anne’s garden. I carry out many duties including creation and maintenance of pot displays, responsibility for and renovation of the Cherry Garden, care of the Fernery and generally anything else required.
My main topic of interest concerns my love of ferns! I have enjoyed many opportunities available to me whilst working for the RHS which have included visits to other gardens and meeting some amazing people along the way to enable me to specialise in this area. Most notable, the priceless work experience I gained at the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh and also memorable visits to Benmore Victorian Fernery and Glasgow’s Kibble Palace and Filmy Fern house. Ascog, on Bute Island, was amazing too…
