My name is Katy Bell, a designer and gardener who trades under The Suffolk Gardener. I re-trained in horticulture after a very long career in publishing. Hopefully you can find all you need to know on the site – I do recommend reading the Useful things to know page as it has lots of the usual questions on there.

Other than that there isn’t much else to say… Most days are taken up with my regular clients but I do look forward to one-off projects. I love getting the opportunity to design, or come up with schemes for beds and underused spaces. I work all year round and other than torrential rain and snow, am pretty hardy.

This is my helper in training Ernie. Not currently very helpful.
