About Gemma

Gemma NanneryHaving left college after her first year Gemma went to do a business admin apprenticeship for a garden design and maintenance company in Surrey. Here she took on all aspects of the business and very quickly became passionate about gardening and design. After a few years Gemma decided to take her design knowledge one step further and enrolled herself in the London College of Garden Design at Kew Gardens. Gemma continued to work whilst studying gaining the hands on experience needed to help her complete the course. In the summer of 2014 Gemma graduated the London College of Garden Design and decided to set up Garden Gems.
