Who are you?
I'm Sharon, manager of the Northallerton store.
What do you do at The Plant Workshop?
Apart from greeting people through the week at Northallerton I also care for the plants across the two sites at Billingham and Northallerton and order lovely new stock for Northallerton. I also pack online orders and impart wisdom and passion to our customers.
What’s your favourite plant?
At the moment it’s the Begonia Maculata Wightii, the leaves alone are stunning but once it blooms “oh my goodness!”
What’s it like to work at The Plant Workshop?
Do you want the truth or what my boss told me to say?? No all jokes aside it’s such a zen work place, with free rein to be creative with displays and helps me embrace my passion for plants.
Most overused word or phrase?
“Air on the side of caution with Your watering!”
One thing you can’t live without?
My brass watering can with a perfect pour spout.
What’s your favourite food?
Allllll the cheese!
What do you enjoy doing when you’re not working?
Socialising with my friends and family, dog walks with my ShiChi Ponyo (mainly at the beach), tending to my own plant collection and hula hooping.
