Amelia trained in garden design at the English Gardening School, located in the historic Chelsea Physic Garden. Having completed her degree in French and Italian a year prior, at the University of Bristol.
She has long had a fascination for all things horticultural, in particular the life and uses of plants in design. She places great emphasis on horticulture in her design work and believes a garden is only as good as its plants.
Amelia's approach is that there is not a 'one size fits all' approach to design, the surroundings and requirements for the garden mould and influence its aesthetic. Each garden should be a visual and tangible expression of the people it is built for.
