Cherrie's introduction to the world of gardening
came at the age of five when she helped her
dad to turn a one acre plot into a lush green
lawn. She now lives in a small terraced house
with a not-so-small terraced garden which she
loves for its rebellious tendencies.
Julie has produced the show for 16 years. She
says the experience is not unlike raising a
family - both respond to careful nurturing in
order to grow and flourish! Her favourite plants
are roses, lilies hellebores and clematis.
Jim is a well known local gardening expert and
has been involved with BBC Northern Ireland
gardening programmes for the past 16 years.
Jim's pedigree is impressive as his ancestor
is the famous 19th century plant hunter, Augustine
Henry, who brought a range of plants such as
clematis and honeysuckle from China to Europe.
Joan inherited her love of gardening from her
father, who was a nurseryman. In her last garden,
which she tended for over 40 years, she planted
acers, rhododendrons, azaleas and camellias.
Now, at a seaside location, she is tackling
a new design and plans to favour an entirely
different group of plants.
Keith has been a regular contributor to Gardeners'
Corner for over 12 years. Keith believes that
gardening should always be enjoyable and tries
to share his enthusiasm for all things horticultural
in a relaxed and entertaining manner.
