Garden tour guide Helen has lived in Bath with her family for thirty-two years. Flower arranging and a desire to grow her own food led her into gardening. "I love all aspects of gardening but especially good planting and design" says Helen. "I attended a garden design course in Bath and designed gardens for friends. Visiting other people's gardens and showing people round my own garden has blossomed into arranging tours of gardens. I possess enthusiasm combined with a sound knowledge of plants and a desire to see people inspired in their own field of creativity by the gardens they visit".
