Initially working as a professional Gardener I set up Judi the Gardener in February 2011. Now in my seventh year of business I work on garden design and development projects trading as Judi Samuels Garden Design.
In my earlier life I studied dance at the Laban Centre and the London Contemporary Dance School, during my twenties and thirties I was a professional dance tutor and choreographer working with theatre in education, regional theatre and adult education. Whilst raising a young family single-handedly I changed direction and flexed my organisational and writing skills by working as a communications coordinator for a large public company. I decided to turn my passion for gardening into a profession after redundancy in the summer of 2010, best decision made! I studied garden and planting design at Capel Manor College in Enfield, which set me on this wonderful journey.
