Gail is a plantswoman and metal artist.
She lectures on scented plants with a touch of science and history thrown in.
She also designs and supplies scented gardens, working closely with the client so that they can then easily take care of the new garden once Gail leaves.
Her metalwork is designed and made to show and help release a plant’s fragrance.
