I’m happiest when I’m in my wellies. If I’m wearing my trusty green boots it means I’m either in my garden surrounded by plants, at my allotment growing tasty fruit, veg and beautiful cut flowers or walking in the gorgeous countryside around my home. For some women, they’re happiest when their feet are ensconced in a pair of expensive Manolo Blahniks or Christian Louboutins, for me it’s a pair of mud-splattered wellies.
I’m passionate about the power plants and nature have to enrich our lives. In a world where it feels like humans are doing their best to damage our incredible planet, gardening and allotments are great ways to feel like you’re doing something constructive to care for our environment.
When I’m not sowing, weeding or dead-heading I’m a freelance writer and stylist. My first book – The Cut Flower Patch – was published on 6 March 2014. I’ve been overwhelmed by the positive response it has received. Here are a few reviews if you’d like to take a look.
The Sunday Telegraph – March 16th – Enjoy cut flowers from the garden
The Guardian – March 8th – How to Grow Your Own Cut Flowers
The Lady magazine – March 13th – Grow Your Own Bouquet
You can also see my writing in Grow Your Own, The Simple Things and Gardens Illustrated magazines and the Guardian newspaper’s garden section.
