Annette – lover of plants, communities and travel

I am a Registered Horticulturist and have enjoyed working in the industry for over 4 decades, twenty of those years as a Fellow of the Australian Institute of Horticulture.

I have been lucky to work in Australia & Asia whilst travelling worldwide seeking new horticultural experiences, exploring communities & experiencing other cultures …… whilst enhancing my everyday life. An active speaker at plant & garden expos I enjoy sharing gardening tips with the audience & also learning from other gardeners & my peers.

Greatest joy has been gained as the owner/MD of AIMS Pty Ltd since 1998. My company specialises in providing horticultural consultancies and landscape assessments. We a proud to fulfil a niche market by providing training programmes to senior horticulturists in Australia & Singapore that includes students from around the world.

Since 2015 I have been privileged to be a member of the board of the Friends of Brisbane Botanic Gardens & Sherwood Arboretum (fBBGSA). It is a fulfilling purpose to share my horticultural knowledge and skills at the same time working alongside other committed volunteers for the advancement of gardens as a benefit to the community & the lucky visitors to Brisbane.
