Grace is also gardener at our sister site, Lawson Park, and Blackwell, where she keeps the Edwardian Mawson garden on the straight and narrow.
Favourite gardener? Local gardener Gary Primrose. His ethos of a gentle, light-touch approach where a garden can have many yields (and not just for humans) influenced me hugely.
When you’re not gardening? Orienteering — our local club is really welcoming and it’s something I can do with my kids as well as solo. I like how it requires total focus – it’s like a form of meditation!
Must-have gardening tool? Good, sharp secateurs and a secateurs holster
