I made a decision in 2008 that I did not wish to return to corporate life but wished to follow my passion for gardening. So with my husband Simon, we decided to open the Stackyard Nursery. The land at Mendlesham in Suffolk of just over 10 acres had been left to Simon by his Mother and Grandmother who used to live in the house next door. We had nothing on site except some old shipping containers. No water or electricity.
Our plan was to focus on the customer who needed some help in deciding what they need to plant or how they should alter their garden to tailor it to their needs. We soon found that many of these customers wanted a more than and chat at the nursery but less than the traditional garden design service that we offered. So for a flat fee, I would visit their garden and offer my advices on all aspects of a Suffolk garden. The charge for this service remains only £30 with travel fee within Suffolk..
My other passion is textiles so I later added an interiors service focusing on fabric and how it can transform a room with new curtains and/or upholstery.
