Hi, I am Fiona and I have lived here in Green Island Gardens with my family since 1996. over the last 25 years I have designed the gardens into 20 acres of plantsmans paradise which has bee open to the public since 2001.
I am also a keen golfer who has a successful amateur career in the ladies senior England team.
My husband and I have six teenage to grown up children (four of which live away/are at university), two dogs and three cats.
We look forward to meeting new people and hope you will enjoy our gardens as much as we do!
