Pip remembers clearly all the flowers in her childhood garden and how her grandfather taught her to care for them.
It took her a few years to realise that they could provide a career for her.
A neglected garden on the banks of the Fal Estuary in Cornwall proved a trigger. The best possible grounding in a Cornish nursery kicked off a long career.
Three years as landscape architect to a billionaire financier at his Berkshire manor house widened Pip’s horizons. Over 27 years, she then worked her way up from Plant Area Assistant to Plant Buyer at Hillier Nurseries, where she also edited its Gardening Club magazine and authored The Hillier Gardeners’ Guide to Climbers and Wall Plants.
Pip is a member of both the Garden Media Guild and the Professional Garden Photographers’ Association.
