I finished my Foundation Degree (FdSc) in Horticultural Science in 2015.
After this I worked at the RHS Rosemoor garden for a year. Leaving with inspiration, specifically from the nursery and formal garden areas, I set up and ran my own gardening business. This was successful for the two years before I joined the team here in January.
I have insight and continued inspiration from my different areas of work, and whilst working to support the research department, I hope to be an inspiration to others.
2015 Foundation Degree (FdSc) in Horticultural Science
I have a broad interest in plant genetics and plan to specify in propagation and pest & disease. Running the greenhouse for the Biosciences team is a great place to develop my skills and knowledge.
