Interview with Horticulture Magazine

Thrilled to be interviewed by Horticulture magazine.

Here are some highlights but you can read the full Horticulture magazine interview by clicking the link:

“Plants have always been very important to me,” Debi shares.

“I spent my early years in Sussex walking country lanes with my mum who taught me to appreciate wildflowers. She introduced me to Cicely Mary Barker’s Flower Fairies and Edith Holden’s The Country Diary of an Edwardian Lady which have always been a big influence on me.

“My gardening roots are firmly planted with wildflowers and herbs and those carefree days of wandering woods and lanes with my mum; I think that is why I am hooked on plant hunting whilst out hiking.

How Has Gardening Changed Your Outlook On Life?

“It has made me more aware of the natural world, honing my senses to listen, smell and touch, observing the daily changes that occur in plants and wildlife,” Debi explains.

“I was struck by the realisation of how everything is integrally interlinked. The more I learned, the more I wanted to study.

“As life and technology get faster and faster, we can be in danger of forgetting where we came from and what is important in life. Plants are the origins of all life on Earth."
