For 8 years I worked as a programmer, never being truly happy with my vocation until I started running my own allotment and volunteering with Nottingham Wildlife Trusts, when I found my true calling. I love working outdoors in all seasons, feeling the seasonable changes and working with nature. So I started out on a new path by studying Horticulture at Brackenhurst in 2015.

Since a young age I have loved nature. Being around it fills me with peace and happiness. As I have gotten older I have grown particularly fascinated with plants. They provide so much for humans and are so versatile. So many shapes, colours, textures, scents. With my love of plants in mind I decided several years ago that I wanted to work with them and so I completed a course in horticulture in order to gain more knowledge and a qualification in the subject. With a desire to work with nature when gardening, my partner and I decided to start our own gardening business to share our love of nature and plants by offering our skills to people wanting to keep beautiful gardens while co-existing with wildlife and nature.
