RHS Level 2

MA in Landscape Architecture

RHS Medal winner 

I have always loved gardening but for 40 years, as a full-time journalist on Fleet Street, the last 20 of which were on The Times, it had to take second place.

As I approached 60, I decided to treat myself to an RHS course in horticulture and my interest in gardens and garden design grew from there. I went on to study landscape architecture at the University of Sheffield (graduating with an MA in 2021).

I have had two RHS show gardens: RHS Tatton Park, Community Border category, 2021, silver medal, and RHS Chelsea Flower Show, Container Category, 2022.
