Nikki runs a successful organic gardening consultancy and garden design service. She holds the prestigious title of Royal Horticultural Society Master of Horticulture and has a diploma in professional garden design from the Cotswold Gardening School.
After leaving school Nikki studied Art and Design followed by Fine Art at Cardiff but longed for the university holidays when she worked as an assistant gardener at Highgrove for HRH Prince of Wales. She went on to study Organic Horticulture at Pershore College and Worcester University. Botanical travels to southern Africa, south-western China and alpine Italy followed and she found wonderful gardening positions at Sting’s Lake House, The Abbey House Malmesbury and leading designer Anoushka Hempel’s Cole Park. Nikki rose through the ranks to become an inspiring head gardener in a beautiful Cotswold garden. All the while she has continued to develop her knowledge and individual style.
She specialises in creating beautiful, functional and wildlife-friendly gardens, has a particular interest in organic fruit, vegetable and flower production and has an all-consuming passion for topiary! Nikki loves sharing her passion and gives regular talks to gardening groups both in real life and online via Zoom.
