I was born 5th February 1990 into a non-gardening family. Somewhere, somehow i got the gardening bug and started selling hanging baskets and plants to my secondary school teachers! Here i was nominated for the Princess Diana memorial award and i later found myself at Althorpe house, having it presented by Earl Spencer.
On leaving 6th form i went straight into working at a plant nursery for three years before starting my own garden maintenance round. I am very lucky now to be Head gardener and good friend to John Massey MBE VMH,Ashwood Nurseries, in his private 3 acre garden.
I am also Chairman of Wollaston Gardeners Guild and tend several allotments (I had my first plot aged 11). I have done my stint exhibiting vegetables and chrysanthemums, collecting a series of trophies and shields and now focus my attentions on my ever-growing collection of alpines and hepaticas in my alpine house at home.
Ask anyone I know and they’ll tell you I have a wicked sense of humour and I like to convey this in my talks.
About my talks...
All my talks are powerpoint presentations and include beautiful garden photography. Most talks include a poem or two and some background music, all contain humour! I have my own projector and microphone. All i require is a screen/white wall to project onto. I can bring plants/homemade jams to sell depending on time of year.
£70 + travel expenses.
Please contact me if you are a small local group as I am sure we can negotiate a suitable fee.
