Sally gardens in Bournemouth, UK, zone 8a (H5). She instinctively got into gardening as a young adult. Working at a garden center when she was 23, she realised straight away the therapeutic power of being around greenery and nurturing plants. She's horticulturally trained to degree level and has worked on gardening magazines for over a decade. Her guilty pleasure is watching TV garden makeover shows – she loves finding simple and creative solutions to transforming an outdoor space, and likes to keep an eye on what varieties top garden designers use. There are many gardening styles and plants that she loves but if she 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’.
