Meet Mandy Bailey – Edinburgh Gardening Entrepreneur

I really admire anyone who follows their dreams, take the plunge & start their own business doing something they’re passionate about. That’s exactly what Mandy did – not only is she doing what she loves but she’s also finding new ways to take that passion to others.


Edinburgh based Mandy Bailey has been gardening her whole life. Inspired by childhood memories of summers in her grandparents garden and her grandad’s man pad (The Shed). As a young kid, she was fascinated by the magic of growing – she especially loved picking the raspberries! She left her corporate life behind her over 12 years ago and turned that obsession into a business. Continually refining her vision, during this time she obtained an RHS Level II certificate in horticulture and Diploma in Garden Design. This is combined with over 10 years of practical experience in her own and clients gardens.


Her obsession is the same – along with her love of raspberries! Her hobbies (when she finds the time) are reading, cooking and spending time with friends and family.

Her aspiration was to get as many people growing their own fresh food. Having a busy family, she knew first hand the pressure of cooking with fresh and seasonal ingredients and she wanted to create a product that suited our time-pressed lifestyle and provide all the components and the knowledge to grow your own.
