My name is Nicola Oakey and I am the dirty finger-nailed writer behind Working Plot.
Drawing inspiration from my garden design training and several months spent volunteering with the National Trust, my plan is to explore anything and everything horticulture. Places, spaces, past, present, plants, people, nature, wildlife and maybe the odd creepy-crawly too!
My blog was initially as great place to keep a record of all the amazing experiences I had whilst a student on the Homebase Garden Academy from September 2014 to 2015. After an amazing year I seem to have well and truly caught the gardening bug and now everything I do seems to revolve around plants, gardens and growing.
I am now a trainee journalist with the Royal Horticultural Society, helping to produce their monthly publication The Garden.
