RHS Young School Gardener of the Year 2016
14 years old from Collingwood College, Camberley
The daughter of a plantsman, Molly’s achievements are numerous. From discovering a new variety of heather and producing over 1,000 plants, to being asked to propagate plants from the National Heather Collection and from Plant Heritage’s Threatened Plant Program. Molly has recently ventured into garden design and created a design for Hampton Court Palace Flower Show as part of her Project GCSE.
“Molly demonstrated enormous talent in garden design, creating a stunning solution for greening up grey spaces. I think she would have a strong career in design if this was the patch she wanted to take.”
“Molly has a natural way with plants and her propagating skills are stellar. She is also a very kind individual who has gone out of her way to protect and propagate a heather that was obviously so sentimental to Elsie.”
“For a 14 year old, Molly is an absolute inspiration. She is already an expert in the propagation and conservation of heathers and is now excelling in garden design. She has a very bright future ahead.”
