I am passionate about gardening and creating outdoor spaces that are gorgeous, adventurous, productive and fun. As well as developing my own garden near Crosshaven, Co. Cork, I have been advising and designing gardens for friends and family for many years. I have been doing this whilst rearing our four children, who also garden with me and share my interest and passion, especially in the vegetable and fruit garden. I have also been practising law for the past 15 years.

I am the Gardening columnist for the Cork Independent newspaper. I take all my own photographs for my articles on gardening. I also customise cards for clients, using photographs taken in their home and garden.
