Flo Headlam’s gardening career
BBC presenter Flo holds a BA in African Studies from the London School of Oriental and African Studies as reported by BBC Gardeners’ World Live.
She later studied for a Diploma in Garden design and in 2012 began working in the gardening sector privately.
Flo writes on her own website: “I like to be physically active, so once a client’s design has been approved, I’m eager to roll up my sleeves and get on with building the garden“.
From 2016-2019 she joined BBC2 Gardeners’ World’s presentation team as a gardening expert.
She was also a judge on BBC Four’s Woman’s Hour Power List 2020.
Is Flo on Instagram?
Yes, Flo Headlam is on Instagram @flo_the_gardener with around 1.8k followers.
She writes in her IG bio: “Greening city gardens as I go along my way” and given Flo’s hometown of London, perhaps she’ll have a knack for transforming city gardens specifically on the BBC show in 2022.
Flo’s Instagram content is almost all gardening-related, although she sometimes posts the odd photo of her family. She joined the platform in 2016.
Speaking to the BBC, Flo said: “I am very excited to be joining the Garden Rescue family and am looking forward to adding my horticulture flavour and having some fun with the other designers.“
Flo is also on Twitter @Flothegardener where she has over 1k followers.
