My Profile, Jacquelyn Jamieson/Ludlam

Submitted by Valeside on Wednesday, May 25, 2011

Hi from Jacquelyn Jamieson (nee Ludlam) the originator of this “Gardens to Visit” Website. I am a Stratford Taranaki girl, who caught my passion for gardening... from my father Jack Ludlam. All 5 generations of the New Zealand Ludlam's worked with the land and fed their families from extensive vegetable patches. I still can’t look at broad beans! As a hairdresser who trained in Christchurch I was taught the elements of design and how to turn something ordinary into something quite spectacular. It was only a small step to transfer these principles into the world of gardens and landscaping. In Auckland I turned a sloping windswept 1.5 acres on Point View Drive into the well known “Valeside” with rock features, paths, subtropical's, a fernery, banks of succulents, orchids and specimen trees. This property has now been sold and I am currently re-establishing my garden in pots & tubs in Howick. Gardenstovisit is the result of many requests from fellow gardeners to have an internet.
