Having gardens to varying degrees all my life I returned to college at twenty five and completed a horticultural degree at Pershore college. On graduating I ran my own business for around two years before returning to college to undertake the Kew Diploma. After completing this I returned to Pershore college to lecture and train, during this time the opportunity to apply for the head gardeners role at Aberglasney arose and I have been here for nearly eight years. Throughout my career I have travelled extensively to study plants in the wild. China South America Turkey and South Africa were the further flung locations but I also studied plants closer to home in Germany and Spain. I have also judged and exhibited in flowers throughout my career including RHS Chelsea, Malvern, Cardiff and Murabilia (Italy). In more recent years I have lectured frequently across the UK, Ireland and Seattle.
