Kim, who recently completed her Garden Design Diploma with Learning Curve and was awarded a distinction, had to create a border around the theme of Birmingham. At just 3m x 3m, Kim had a real challenge on her hands creating a design that would impress the judges. Kim's border was entitled 'A Sensory Retreat' and featured a small seating area amidst a range of plants especially selected to engage the senses. All the hard work paid off when she was presented with an RHS Gold Medal by Alan Titchmarsh.
Kim is now running her own horticulture business, helping others to get started with fruit and vegetable growing. You can find out more by visiting her website: The Grow Your Own Resource Centre.
