Marketed and advertised well in advance the garden centre events manager organised a wide array of activities from talks to Q+A sessions and workshops, some aimed directly at children. Encouraging children outdoors and into the garden is something Frances feels very passionate about and the kids loved potting out plants and getting green fingers with her alongside mentoring.

Frances completed her Horticulture with Plantsmanship degree at SRUC Edinburgh in 2013 and has quickly risen to one of the young generation of gardenings top stars.
