Workshops and Lectures

Lecturing, running  workshops and writing on all aspects of roses.  

I started my lecturing aged 12 and it was on gardening! Since then I have given lectures and run workshops around the world. I am known for my great enthusiasm for roses. Venues for workshops include David Austin Roses, Royal Horticultural Society, English Garden School, The Plant School, Daylesford Organic Farm and the National Trust. I have given lectures to gardening clubs and rose societies both great and small in this country and abroad.

I am frequently asked to write about roses and have done so for many magazines, rose society journals and websites around the world.

I have made a number of appearances on television and been interviewed for the radio many times.
