about Dawn

I am an RHS Chelsea medal-winning garden designer with a speciaity in designing family, school and pre-school gardens.

When not designing, I also 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.  My first book, Garden Crafts for Children, was published in 2012 and my latest book, 101 Things For Kids to Do Outside, came out in 2014.  The follow up - 101 Things For Kids To Do On Rainy Days - will be available from October 2015.

Oh, and I also serve as the horticultural adviser on the award-winning Cbeebies show, Mr Bloom’s Nursery. If you haven't seen it, you should.  There are singing aubergines.
