I am a full-time Mum and plant mad person who also works as a creator of gardens. I can provide design and maintenance advice, create gardens from scratch, update garden planting schemes as well as garden maintenance. Yep, I am a great weeder.
I have worked with the owner of a walled garden in Winslow, Bucks. to update and restore her garden to its former splendor and beyond, into a garden style more befitting modern family life.
I have carried out a number of designs which range from planting plans to complete new design.
I assisted the dressing of a large garden near High Wycombe ready for its public open days under the Yellow Book Scheme. I have had a couple of seasons growing herbs, vegetables and flowers for sale at markets. It has been a pleasure to plant up containers for time strapped professionals.
I continue to work as Dorris as part of a small team for a rather special family garden on the edge of the Chiltern hills. I oversee the formal herbaceous gardens as well as the wilder Woodland area of the garden. Some of the larger projects worthy of comment here include a lighting scheme, the greenhouse, sourcing garden sculpture, and planting of new trees to create a copse for the future.
I am an avid reader of gardening books and magazines and try to visit as many gardens and Shows as I can get away with. I am an amateur photographer with far too many plant pictures and thought this blog would be a good ‘home’ to park my pictures. I hope you will enjoy my posts.
The photographs and content of this blog are all my own work. The photos have been taken by me and if you would like to use them in any shape or form please be sure to contact me for permission. Please send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
I will get back to you as soon as I am in from the garden.
