I first visited Clifton about ten years ago, at the time I was attending Art School. One of my sisters was living in North London and treated me to tea at the Quince Tree Café. I remember walking along the tree-lined passageway which opens up into the stunning Nurseries and could hardly believe I was in the middle of London. A lush green oasis, full of delicate flowers, pots, trees and light captured my imagination. I wanted to draw there and then!

My love of plants continues and I am a practicing artist creating mixed media drawings. My inspiration is found in nature – the dramatic curve of a stem, delicate ball of petals or heavy lush leaves compel me to draw.  I sketch wherever I can; wild flowers along the banks of the river Thames, world-class specimens in Kew Gardens or weeds on a London street.  I have an eye for detail and enjoy communicating all that I see including minor imperfections. I love the process of making a mark on a surface - the sound of a pencil leaving a line, varying its pressure sometimes breaking it, dirty hands, seeing the unfolding and evolving drama that takes place upon the paper.

If you have the smallest patio or window box its easy to create a display of spring flowers from late Winter right through to early Summer. You really don’t need to have a garden or any expertise.

With Clifton Nurseries
During the process of designing an outdoor space for a client, we often get the privilege to work with craftsmen. A landscape may require a focal point, be it a special stone sculpture or feature, perhaps a specimen tree in a striking pot that will bring cohesion to the overall design.

If we are to believe every word of the BBC weather man, it looks like this spring will be warmer and more forgiving to gardeners than 2013. Spring is a great time to indulge in some simple gardening tasks, even if you don’t have a garden you can sow some seeds in readiness for self sufficiency in pots or window boxes! Read More

Flowers and fashion

7 Feb 2014 12:13:03

I used to work in the corridors of high fashion, it wasn’t for the fashionable faint hearted. Have you seen Devil Wears Prada? Enough said! Running the risk that it’s a quiet day, risking jeans and an old tatty sweater meant I’d undoubtedly end up in an unplanned meeting with someone important with a perfect manicure and glossy hair.

There was one day every year which struck fear in my heart. It wasn’t the start of fashion week, or being caught hiding in the post room eating a big Mac and fries. It was Valentine’s Day.

Spare a thought for the birds who need our help to survive the winter. Did you know that birds can use up to a tenth of their body weight trying to keep warm on a cold winter night.

During the winter months, the mortality rate of many of our birds reaches dangerous levels depending on the severity of the temperatures. Searching for food and water and making sure that they eat and drink enough to survive the winter in a healthy condition so they are fit to breed in the spring is their greatest challenge. Insects become harder to find and any seeds and berries can be covered by snow and frost.

Spring into Spring this Autumn

24 Oct 2013 14:05:26

Autumn is well and truly here, the nights are drawing in and the temperatures are starting to drop. All around us is flaming coloured foliage. Purples, reds, oranges and golds explode in the garden before the leaves fall to the ground. Trees, shrubs and perennials will soon be laid bare. Nature is preparing to sleep for the Winter.

Autumn; it's the new Summer

11 Sep 2012 14:36:37

Standing in my garden the other day I was struck by the sudden and rather worrying realisation that two out of six of my recently planted espalier apple trees were looking distinctly yellow. Now I'm very attached to these trees, they are planted in a prominent place - forming part of the boundary down one side of the garden in lieu of a hedge or fence - and as I've never grown fruit at home before, despite doing this job for more than 20 years...
