Here’s a story about me

Here’s a story about me

As a young nursery apprentice, I read an advertisement in an American magazine. It was for a company called the White Flower Farm: they were selling Jasmine plants. The advertisement was in black and white, mostly text. It was simply embellished with an elegant hand sketch: the Jasmine blossom twisted and fell down the vertical of the long slender advertisement space. The evocative prose intertwined romantically and emotionally like the twirling stems of the Jasmine vine. Those words, that image, the imagined fragrance almost scented the page.

This very common Jasmine had been transformed into a “must have” purchase. What were they selling? They were selling the promise, creating the desire, tickling the impulse button. What they were actually selling, for a lot of money, was a tiny rooted cutting – I was bewitched.

This was a defining moment in my fledgling career. Selling the promise, detailing and packaging these beautiful plants that we grow – converting them from “produce” to “prized”, this was what I wanted to do. To generate value for the beautiful, the lush, the unique and exquisitely ordinary. To craft words and image. This was and remains my “mission”. To enhance, present and value add. To create desire and must-have desperation for the end consumer. My career in horticulture has been long and twining, working in amazing top end retail centres, and innovative wholesale production – Roles of manager, buyer, creative director and public relations and always at front of mind: how to better sell that plant.

Creating catalogues, writing for magazines and journals, photographing, merchandising, running forums, teaching and mentoring. Design, branding and creative copy writing, always seeking that marketing opportunity, to better sell that plant, that garden, that concept. The evolution of the web and everyday instant access to information online has created exciting new opportunities to connect and talk to an enormous and product hungry market. 2002 was the year I entered the marketing and brand building arena, offering my range of services to the industry.

Over the years I have directed many amazing projects with impressive outcomes, and have ongoing valued and respected clients. I submerge myself in everything new, embracing technology and the advantages, opportunities and challenges it brings. Connecting with other brand builders, designers and developers, I attend seminars and conferences on fashion trends, market drivers and ecommerce. Seeking inspiration and knowledge that allows me to create relevant contemporary options and solutions for my clients. When I first saw that advertisement, for a very ordinary little plant, from a country that was a “million” miles away, who would have thought that today with a key stroke and a click, the promise is made and the dream delivered, and I can, and do, make that happen, and I can make it happen for you.
