She and Jane exhibited at the RHS Tatton Park Flower Show in 2017, where they were awarded a Silver-Gilt medal for their show garden ‘Remember Me’.

‘I have worked with The Cheshire Garden for five years as a planting planner and quickly learnt that Jane is a thoughtful, highly professional and creative person who earns the admiration of her clients with her innovative garden designs. She listens to others’ opinions and ideas resulting in her having excellent working relationships with clients, hard landscapers and the planting team.’
