Sally Jenner

I’m Sally and I garden in Bournemouth, UK, zone 8a (H5). I instinctively got into gardening as a young adult. Working at a garden centre when I was 23, I realised straight away the therapeutic power of being around greenery and nurturing plants. I’m horticulturally trained to degree level and have worked on gardening magazines for over a decade. My guilty pleasure is watching TV garden makeover shows – I love finding simple and creative solutions to transforming an outdoor space, and I like to keep an eye on what varieties top garden designers use. There are many gardening styles and plants that I love but if I had to take one group of plants to a desert island, it would be trees and shrubs that have aromatic foliage like Eucalyptus parvula and Lavender ‘Grosso’.
