All of my adult life I have had a passion for gardening and especially sourcing and growing unusual plants from all over the world.

I was inspired by both my grandmothers in various creative arts and especially in gardening and embroidery. I am a self-taught horticulturist and studied garden design with John Brookes who has always been a great source of information, inspiration and assistance.

I have collected a large library of garden related books and continue to use these as reference, research and inspiration.

Many of the gardens that I have constructed and landscaped in Johannesburg, and other parts of South Africa, have been featured in various magazines.

I am a totally natural gardener and do not use any form of toxic chemicals. Nature assists me in many ways to create and assist my clients to enjoy the therapy of gardening.
