Ann Hamilton King began her journey into the world of horticulture through the influence of her mother, Elsie Grobler Hoffman. Later in life, being open-minded to opportunities that come with volunteering, Ann volunteered to work at Kew Gardens in England and had the opportunity to see and learn how gardens are maintained. Amazed by how tiny seeds could grow into such beautiful flowers and plants, she combined the knowledge from Kew Gardens and the desire imparted to her by her mother and decided to embark on a lifelong adventure exploring the world of horticulture. Over the years, she has studied and photographed Zimbabwean plants in diverse habitats. Her experience is reflected in her articles in Harare Magazine and in many personal blogs like www.12fleetwood.co.zw.
