A keen amateur gardener since her teens, worked in airline and IT industry for many years. Sue entered BBC Gardener of the Year as amateur gardener in 2006 and found Bluebell Cottage Gardens and Nursery in a run down state while looking for plants to build her competition garden with.

After winning the competition, Sue and husband Dave sold their house near Warrington and bought the cottage, nursery, gardens and adjacent meadow and bluebell woods. Sue now runs the nursery and garden full time. Garden is acre and a half open to public Apr-Sept, nursery specialises in hardy herbaceous perennials.
