About me

Occupation Garden Designer and Writer
Location Gamlingay, Cambridgeshire, United Kingdom
Introduction I'm a gardening designer and writer based in rural Cambridgeshire and I love my plants, especially perennials! I've worked in horticulture for over 13 years, the last five focusing on garden design and writing. Training across the RHS qualifications to Diploma level mostly at Shuttleworth College in Bedfordshire. I write for Hertfordshire Life and Essex Life and have a monthly Grow Your Own diary on the Soil Association's website. Since February 2011, I've had a stall every Wednesday and Thursday on Cambridge market selling lots of lovely gardening and home things including an extensive range of seeds from Franchi Seeds Of Italy, homegrown plants and interesting bits and pieces.

You've broken up with your old band and are about to release your first solo album. Please write the liner notes:

Philippa's debut solo album explores her versatile voice range and random bum notes, not necessarily in the right order. Ear plugs provided.
