Sue Tasker, Dip Hort Kew

Price Band A

Based in West Cumbria


After training at the Royal Botanic Gardens Kew and working as a Gardens Supervisor, first of the Temperate House and then in the Orchid Unit, Sue spent a large part of her working life as Head Gardener for the Lake District National Park, at Brockhole, near Windermere.


Since 2004 she has been a freelance gardener, consultant and author, writing gardening articles for the Westmorland Gazette, West Cumbria Times & Star, Cumbria Life and, more recently, Country Life, amassing a considerable following. Her articles are based on her extensive knowledge and experience of gardening in the Lake District and have helped countless gardeners deal with the tricky climate, problems of pests and diseases, and with pruning and planting, as well as with encouraging wildlife into the garden, a particular area of interest for Sue. Some of the popular articles published in the Westmorland Gazette were turned into a best-selling book "A Year in a Lake District Garden".


A leading light in the Professional Gardeners' Guild, Sue has been the Editor of its magazine 'The

Professional Gardener' for many years, steering it from humble beginnings to being a much admired professional publication. Together with her husband (also an ex-Kewite) she is currently making a two acre garden on their smallholding in West Cumbria.
