Passionate about plants, Hannah decided to specialise in horticultural production after realising what a range of rewarding careers are on offer.
She chose to study at University Centre Reaseheath because of our investment into cutting edge horticultural technology and has taken every opportunity to gain scientific and research skills in our industry standard glasshouses and laboratories. She also gained essential work experience with Fryer’s Roses, for whom she now works part-time, and with world renowned breeder David Austin Roses.
Hannah displayed her scientific poster comparing the carbon footprint of Kenya’s rose growing industry to UK production at RHS Flower Show Tatton Park 2016 and has continued to research the sustainable growing of ornamental plants as part of her degree.
Before becoming an undergraduate with us Hannah had completed A-Levels, enjoyed a gap year travelling and had a short career as a hairdresser. But she realised her roots were in horticulture after working part-time at a garden centre.
