The Bonnie Gardener

My name is Nicola and I work as a domestic gardener in the north of Glasgow.  My love of gardening, plants and horticulture started at an early age and I enjoy nothing more than a day of gardening – whether that’s mowing lawns, planting herbaceous borders, pruning roses or trimming hedges.

I obtained my Royal Horticultural Society level 2 qualification in Horticulture at the Royal Botanic Gardens in Edinburgh, but for me every day spent in a garden is a school day – I am always eager to learn more and enhance my existing knowledge and skills.

Prior to becoming a gardener I worked in the media and PR industry, and as well as writing this blog, I write about gardening and horticulture in a freelance capacity for magazines such as The Herald’s Scottish Gardener and the Scots Magazine.  I am also lucky to do the PR for Scotland’s most established horticultural event, Gardening Scotland, which takes place every June at the Royal Highland Showground, Ingliston, Edinburgh.

I sit on the board of the Hidden Gardens on the south side of Glasgow and am a member of The Caley (The Royal Caledonian Horticultural Society).

    I wish I had a plot of land; I would grow wings 🙂
