Flo Headlam

Flo Headlam once worked in the charity sector, before deciding in her mid-forties to change track and enter the world of horticulture and gardening.

Flo Headlam was always passionate about gardening. Coming to the UK from the Caribbean, her parents gave her an early insight into self-sufficiency, providing her with her own garden to grow vegetables. Yet, she didn’t think this could be a job. She initially studied African Studies at the London School of Oriental and African Studies before becoming a dancer and then a two-decade career in charity work.

It was whilst studying horticulture and garden design at Capel Manor College – as well as raising a young family – that Flo was approached by BBC’s Gardeners’ World (2017-2019). This allowed her to travel around the country to meet people, all united in their love for gardening.

Flo is passionate about her craft and easily communicates this passion to others. She is friendly and down-to-earth, and it is this nature that makes her a popular presenter, event host and keynote speaker.
