Thompson & Morgan: Team Profile - Sue Sanderson

Name: Sue Sanderson
Position: eCommerce Horticultural Executive

Plants and gardens have always been a big part of my life. I can remember helping my Dad to prick out seedlings, even before I could see over the top of the potting bench. As an adult, I trained at Writtle College where I received my degree, BSc. (Hons.)Horticulture.

After working in a specialist plantsman's nursery, and later, as a consulting arboriculturalist, I joined Thompson & Morgan in 2008. Initially looking after the grounds and coordinating the plant trials, I now support the web team offering horticultural advice online.

As the owner of a small town garden on a steep, free-draining site, I have a keen interest in drought resistant plants and a passion for perennials, particularly hardy Geraniums. When I'm not pottering in my own garden I love to visit other people's, to gain ideas, and sometimes just to be nosey! I'm also a regional secretary for the International Plant Propagation Society which gives me lots of opportunities to see what other horticulturalists are up to in their nurseries and gardens.

I also do a fortnightly Q&A on Thompson & Morgan's Facebook page where I try to give advice on a whole host of questions, including those from first-time gardeners to quite technical horticultural queries, and now I have my very own blog Sue's Hort Report
