Catherine was the designer of The Hartley Botanic Garden on main avenue at RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2016 which won silver-gilt and is also the designer of The Squires Garden at Hampton Court Palace Flower Show 2016 which celebrates 80 years of Squires Garden Centres.
A very fine and accomplished designer, Catherine works with Landform Consultants. Of note - and it is very worth noting - Landform were involved in 4 Chelsea 2016 show gardens and one trade stand. Also; top Don at Landform Mark Gregory, who judged show gardens Peter Donegan designed and built at Bloom, this year built his 150th show garden at RHS Chelsea (yes, one hundred and fifty).
As noted in the interview, my noting of Mark is not to steal any of Catherine's limelight, more I feel it adds to it and to be fair, there's an element of her being Thierry Henry and her boss Arsene Wenger, if you will.
On todays show we of course chat Catherine getting married 3 days before the build of her garden at RHS Hampton Court Palace Flower Show, her garden at RHS Chelsea Flower Show, her career to date and of course we vere totally of the point as only The Sodshow can do.
Our very special thanks to Rose Tinted PR for her work behind the scenes on this one.
