Team Bayet – John and Mags
Here we meet Bayet garden designer John Thoumire and team mate Mags Wright.
Name: John Thoumire
Describe yourself: I am an avid traveller who loves to read, write and garden. I came to horticulture as a form of therapy and hope to extend everything I have learned at SRUC to others in the future.
Favorite design style: Modernist, however I love the idea of fusing design styles and attempting to create something different.
Design Icon: Piet Oudolf – New York Highline
What’s your motto: I do not have a motto. I just want to do what I can with what I have.
What are you most looking forward to at Gardening Scotland? Setting up Bayet with my team on SRUC College Street.
Name: Margaret (Mags) Wright
Describe yourself: I’m a mum of three with a love of all things gardening. It’s wonderful being a garden design student a little later in life, after a career indoors in Banking. Really looking forward to a complete career change when I graduate.
Favourite design style: I love naturalistic styles like Arts and Crafts or English Landscape
Design Icon: So many to choose from …. Gertrude Jekyll to Charles Jencks to Mary Reynolds – all inspire me
What’s your motto? Every garden needs Alliums !
What are you most looking forward to at Gardening Scotland? Getting inspiration for new planting combinations and finding out what’s on trend. Also looking forward to getting the opportunity to build a show garden – what a great experience!
