10 things you never knew about me …Katie Rushworth

1. I’m from Leeds originally, and have lived in Yorkshire all my life, I now live just 15 minutes away from Ilkley which is where Alan grew up!

2. I was a bit of a geek at school, and can’t ever remember getting into trouble!

3. I love cooking and am a huge fan of anything healthy and spicy – so veg curry, thai salads and sushi with tonnes of wasabi! are some of my favourite dishes.

4. My middle name is Louise.

5. I have an 8 year old daughter and a 10 year old stepdaughter, and juggle my family life with filming, running my own garden design business, writing my book and doing talks and garden workshops up and down the country.

6. I used to play steel pans for Leeds. I was the tenor pan!

7. I love to exercise, especially Yoga which I try and do three times a week. I am also out most days walking my miniature schnauzer ‘Ziggy’ on the moors or in the woods near where I live.

8. I love a bit course fishing when I get the chance which is rarely these days, my grandad taught me as a young child and has subsequently taught my daughter too. I also love to dance, you can never dance and not feel happy.

9. I’ve got one younger brother.

10. I love real ale and craft beers – my favourite at the moment is Milk Stout, my great grandma used to let me taste it when I was a kid and I thought it was disgusting! She’d be proud of me now.

  2. Hi Katie
    Good on you my dear. You are an inspiration to young ladies, single mums and your little girl. I raised 2 children on my own and now I look at them so proud of their achievements and know I had a part in that! You will too. God bless you 🙂

  3. Hi Katie
    Thank you for the fantastic Transform Your Garden magazine with the Mail on Sunday – just what I needed, as it is full of great advice and design tips.
    also, I absolutely love the gorgeous flower top you are wearing on the cover of the magazine, and wonder if you would mind letting me know where you purchased it, as I would love one just like yours. I did think it was a Kath kidson, but there was nothing like it on the website.
    I am very much looking forward to your Love Your Garden series later this year, and only wish I was starting sooner.
    I wish you every success with the programme, and also your garden design business.

    Sincere best wishes,

    Christine Coombes
