“My grandmother was a gardener. When I was a girl she would take my hand and walk through the garden with me, naming the plants and telling me what made them thrive. At home my father set aside my very own garden plot in which I chose to grow flowers and vegetables. I also remember planting the odd fruit tree with him- plums and figs. So, from the start I loved the plant world for its beauty and nourishment.”
