A few words about myself

I am currently working as the Social Media Manager for the Alpine Garden Society and I write for various gardening magazines. In my spare time I am also organising and leading tours, and lecturing to gardening groups in the UK and abroad.

In the past I have worked in garden design and maintenance, and I have been the editor of the Saxifrage Magazine for the Saxifrage Society. 

I was fortunate to grow up in Transylvania in a town surrounded by vast woodlands and species-rich wildlife meadows, a fact that has influenced the way I designed and maintained gardens. My interest extends to studying plants in the wild. Leading wildlife tours gives me the opportunity to share my interest and knowledge of botany. So far I have organised private tours to Transylvania and Spain, and have led several tours to Greece and Sweden for the AGS. 

My interests range from alpine plants and bulbs, succulents, fruit and heirloom vegetables, ferns and orchids, to perennials, shrubs and trees. I am very keen on plant propagation, from getting difficult alpines to germinate to twin-scaling snowdrops and taking root cuttings of various perennials.
