Her natural, down-to-earth approach has made her popular and trusted figure.

Since then he has designed gardens, both large and small, all over the place from the South of France to the Western Isles. He has designed show gardens at both the Chelsea Flower Show and the Westonbirt International Festival of the Garden.
