“Katie’s Greenhouse” is a friendly, family-run business, providing a complete spectrum
of design and planting services. Many of the plants are grown in our own small nursery.
Katie, a keen gardener since age 4, trained as an ecologist/ botanist, including
studying botany at Cambridge University. For many years, she worked as a botanical
surveyor & conservation officer. After having her three boys, Katie returned to
college to study horticulture & garden design. After several requests for help from
friends and neighbours, Katie started her garden design business in 2004
Katie has worked in over 120 gardens, ranging from tiny, urban “outdoor rooms” to
extensive country gardens. As a plant specialist, she excels in finding plants that
will thrive in the prevailing conditions - soil, aspect, pH, climate, etc., all
the while taking care to meet the clients’ particular requirements and to give that
Charlie and George, Katie’s sons, now enjoy working alongside Katie and various contractors
in client’s gardens (when they are not studying.) Derek, Katie’s husband, helps
with woodwork off-site.
From our base in the New Forest, together with our teams of friendly and reliable
contractors, we have worked in gardens throughout Surrey, Sussex, Hampshire, Wiltshire
and Dorset, as well as on commercial sites nationwide.
We would love to create the garden of your dreams too...
