What does Writtle University College mean to you?
My course at Writtle has enabled me to pursue an amazing career in garden and landscape design. I started out on my own designing small gardens for local people and it has just grown hugely over the last 11 years. We now have five designers here at Aralia and four of them trained at Writtle, which speaks volumes about how I regard the teaching at Writtle!

What did you particularly enjoy about your course?
I really loved my time at Writtle; it’s a very open environment in which to study, there is a lot of passion and encouragement from the lecturing staff, who are always happy to help. I thought the course content was excellent and the surrounding landscape and gardens certainly proved to be both a great learning tool and a beautiful place to study.
