“Heather helped us to create the relaxed, tranquil garden the house truly deserved. We had opened up the views to the Chilterns and the planting bridges the informality of the pastures and hedgerows with the formality of the patio, house and barn.

Heather designed all aspects and we jointly commissioned and managed the hard landscaping, all was very smooth!

Heather has a gift for matching colour, scale and architectural planting to create a sense of place, be it the dramatic “hot area” around the pool or the much more understated grasses and wild flowers of the margins of the garden.”


“I am so very pleased with my garden since your redesign and planting. I am now able to enjoy it without being a slave to it”


“We are delighted how the plan has come to life and have received, many congratulations on the layout and approach. Without your attention to detail and dedication to the task, we are sure that the project would not have been completed with such finesse. Your work is very much appreciated”


“We are absolutely delighted with the final product and are grateful for all your hard work and expertise. We look forward to seeing you in autumn”


“Following a recommendation from a friend we commissioned Apassiflora to create a more cohesive plan for our new 1 acre country garden. We had completed hard landscaping and lawns but needed inspiration and planting plans to bring it together. Due to the size of the garden Heather recommended a phased approach and over a period of 12 months produced lovely planting plans with some additional architectural features to make the garden come alive.

Following this we were moved to create a summer house and after searching online and garden centres realised we needed a bespoke solution.  We had a meeting with Heather and briefed her on our thoughts. A design concept was created which we loved, so we progressed this further together with the help of our builders we are now the proud owners of a fantastic additional space in the garden which has potential for many uses. It fits beautifully into our garden and complements the house perfectly.

We love the planting combinations and continue to enjoy the surprises of new plants and bulbs popping up through the seasons giving interest through the year. The result is something we could never have created without Heather’s talents and we would have no hesitation to recommend her services for complete garden design from structural work to beautiful planting plans.
The results are truly fabulous.”
