Talks & Workshops

I love to share my expertise with people – especially the younger generation. Helping people discover the joy of plants and bugs is one of my real passions.

I've given a range of talks to various groups and organisations (check out past events). My talks mix gardening and fun (no dry lectures here!), and I usually bring along plenty to see and touch plus items for sale. Audience participation is always encouraged and people are welcome to make notes.

I'm endorsed by the Hampshire Federation of Horticultural Societies (affiliated with the Royal Horticultural Society) as a speaker.

I offer a wide range of talks suitable for a variety of audiences, have a look at the full list to see them all.

Online events during COVID-19

Learn about gardening from a safe distance

​During the coronavirus pandemic nature and our gardens have become even more important and I'm very happy to help people learn to enjoy and improve them.

I can do talks and consultations via Zoom, so if you'd like advice or a talk please do get in touch. 

Workshops in the garden have resumed.
