"I wanted to say a huge thank you for the wonderfully inspiring 10 week Garden Design course last autumn."
Briony D

"I was looking for a career change after moving areas two years ago and from my first visit to the school I was impressed by the enthusiasm and professional approach of all involved. The course involves a balance of theory and teaching, with guest lecturers adding to Caroline’s core instruction, and practical work. Feedback from ‘real’ clients has been invaluable."
Dena W
"Thank you for a totally inspiring day. I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it and want to begin working on my survey, planting plans and mood board straight away. There is a whole lot to learn but instead of being overwhelmed I am very excited knowing that I can take my creativity and put it into a more structured plan to help move forward."
Anita C
"I attended your garden design day course last week and I just wanted to thank you for such an enjoyable and informative day. We both loved it and felt your amazing enthusiasm was deliciously contagious. Loads of ideas now buzzing around."
Rosalie A
"I just wanted to let you know how much I've enjoyed the last 10 weeks and how much I've learned from you and from the others on the course. I will miss Wednesdays at the gardening school but I'm looking forward to seeing everyone again at Malvern - and to turning my design into a reality in my own garden! And hopefully to steering my career in a totally different direction as a garden designer."
Carole N
“A belated but heartfelt thank you of the super day I spent at the school a few Saturdays ago! It was a real inspiration, and I am just itching to put ideas into practice and to learn more!”
Elaine M
"Thank you so much for the very informative and interesting course I attended last Saturday, also for the delicious lunch. I’ve certainly come home with plenty of ideas – now I just need the time, energy and vision to put them into practice!"
Geraldine G
"Sending our sincere thanks for a thoroughly enjoyable day at the Garden Design group last Saturday. You honestly made the day so interesting and I was actually amazed how much material I seemed to retain! Believe me Caroline, this is very unusual for me..... :-)"
Maggie N
"I wanted to gain some underpinning knowledge about gardening. Coming to an Open Morning convinced me that the Cotswold Gardening School was a great place to learn. I chose to do the Professional Horticulture course and this became the highlight of my week, every week, for 10 weeks! The School is an inspiring place with great facilities."
Diana M
"Very many thanks for a splendid day on Saturday. The day course was just what I was looking for and I learnt a lot – happy coincidence that we both share clay soil and so it was enlightening to discover new plants which would survive it and to be reassured that some of my choices were also yours. I appreciate the amount you packed into a day’s teaching especially on such a warm day."

Sarah Fletcher


Sarah grew up in Wales and lived for a time in the Far East. She has always found the beauty of nature to be invigorating and awe inspiring whilst at the same time providing balm for the soul.  It was during her years in the Far East that her passion for horticulture began; growing as much as she could on a tiny little balcony. She loves to share this passion through her work and seeks to enrich the lives of her clients by designing beautiful, inspirational yet functional spaces in which to relax and unwind.

Having spent many years in management, but being obsessed with plants, she retrained in 2005 and took the RHS Level 2 Certificate of Horticulture for which she was awarded a distinction. In addition to raising a family, Sarah successfully ran her own garden maintenance and planting company for 12 years and became a volunteer gardener for the National Trust. In 2015 she completed an 8 week course in Professional Planting Design.

In 2017 she graduated from the Cotswold Gardening School with a distinction in Professional Garden Design having studied for the one year diploma.  During her time at the school she won the course prize for Best Plant Portfolio and was a competition winner having designed a planting scheme for Wyevale Nurseries HQ in Hereford.

Since graduating she has designed projects in North Somerset, Bristol and Hereford as well as providing consultancy to clients wishing to gain confidence or learn more about caring for their garden.
