about Dawn

I am an RHS Chelsea medal-winning garden designer with a speciaity in designing family, school and pre-school gardens. As well as designing gardens in the south and east of England, I also offer a remote design service which allows me to work for clients all over the UK and overseas.

When not designing, I write on my favourite topics - garden design and children's gardening - for a range of publications including the Guardian and Telegraph as well as penning a blog chronicling garden (mis)adventures with my own kids at www.littlegreenfingers.com.  

I have also written three books to date: Garden Crafts for Children, published in 2012, 101 Things For Kids to Do Outside which came out in 2014 and 101 Things For Kids To Do On A Rainy Day which was published in October 2015. My latest book 101 Briliant Things for Kids to do with Science is due to be published in March 2017. To date my books have been translated into nine languages and sold over 150,000 copies worldwide.

In addition I run design courses at Cambridge University Botanic Garden, as well as giving talks and running children's gardening sessions at a range of events which have included BBC Gardeners' World Live, the Ideal Home Show and Grow London.
