I have worked in Horticulture since 1998, having previously trained as a textile designer and subsequently worked in that field, with clients in Europe and Japan. After re-training with Jane Packer Flowers for 5 years, I moved to take up a role with Marks & Spencer, in 2005, as their first specialist product developer in Horticulture, with a remit to make M&S flower ranges the best on the high street. My role at M&S includes developing Collections for all the major flower “events”, as well as seasonal ranges, working with global suppliers while always prioritising British Growers when possible. In association with Sallis Chandler Garden Designers we have also exhibited at the Chelsea Flower Show for the past 6 years, a career highlight for me. I am a trustee of the London-based Floral Angels, who distribute “surplus” florist flowers to hospices and residential homes, and have greatly enjoyed the invitation to be a GMG awards judge for 2017 and 2018. In my down time I can be found gardening in Kent, combating coastal winds and very dry summers.
