Alumni Stories - Winning RHS Silver Gilt Award

Polly Wilkinson

Alumna Polly Wilkinson (London Marketing 2010-2017), now an award winning garden designer, talks about her journey from marketing in law firms to winning RHS Silver Gilt for her conceptual garden at Hampton Court Flower Show in 2018 and a Silver Medal and People's Choice Award at Hampton Court in 2019.

Polly’s aim is to get to Chelsea Garden Show in the future and hopes to run a business as successful and sustainable as possible.

"The key for a designer, in my opinion, is not to impose your own taste on your clients. It should always be about what they want – after all, it's their garden”."
