How did you get into gar­den­ing?

When I was seven my mother gave me a packed of Vir­ginia scented stock seeds and a trowel. I was dev­as­tated! But they grew into beau­ti­ful flow­ers and I was smit­ten by gar­den­ing and have been ever since.

What is your big­gest weak­ness when you visit a gar­den cen­tre?

I’m al­ways try­ing to get a se­cond trol­ley of plants – it’s amaz­ing how much you can fit into a con­vert­ible car with the roof down!

If you could only have one plant in your gar­den, what would it be?

That’s so hard – I think it would have to be a tree, a Prunus, be­cause they have ev­ery­thing from beau­ti­ful bark through to won­der­ful blos­som.

■ What is your favourite season of the year and why?

It’s al­ways the season I’m in. There’s some­thing in ev­ery season that’s ab­so­lutely mag­i­cal and there’s al­ways some­thing to look for­ward to.

“If I had to choose one plant it would be a tree, prob­a­bly a Prunus”, said Sue Biggs
