About

“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 “WOW” factor!

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...
