Wreath making

It's been a busy time for me these past few weeks, with lots of exciting design projects coming to fruition but also it's the time that I make Christmas wreaths for friends and clients. After a marathon few sessions I am finally done - this is number 15, and hangs proudly on my own front door!

Christmas Sale

If you're in London (and even if you're not!) then please join me and a host of other talented makers, crafters and artists at a Christmas sale to raise money for the very worthy Child Bereavement charity.  I will be also taking orders for Christmas wreaths and other decorations.

Date: Thursday 17th November
Time: 2:00pm until 9:00pm
Location: 42 Chepstow Villas W11 (Entrance on Denbigh Road)

Bring your friends and your cash and help us support this wonderful charity!

My mentorees

I've been mentoring three young people - Will, Tilly and Cappy. They've been accompanying me on planting jobs and getting stuck in and learning lots as they go. It's a great relationship and fantastic to be able to help the next generation of gardeners.  Here they are, still smiling, after a long day planting down in Bath with head gardener Jonny.

My garden opening for Perennial

Yesterday I opened my garden to raise money for Perennial, formerly the Gardeners Royal Benevolence Society. It was a sold-out event and I hosted 30 people and gave them a tour of my garden, talked about my favourite plants and answered a lot of questions! Despite the weather not being on its best behaviour, a great day was had by all, and my beautiful wildflower turf was looking fabulous for the occasion too!
