Some rather lovely feedback from Ampleforth and District Gardening Club Thank you so much for giving such an interesting and most amusing talk to our club members last Wednesday. So many people said how much they had enjoyed the evening. We look forward to seeing you again next year in September.
A little bit about myself
I never really made the decision to become a horticulturist, however plants have simply always been part of my life. At 13 I had a gardening round, and an allotment, supplying the local shop with veg & earning a little pocket money.
After training as a professional horticulturist I have worked in roles as diverse as cucumber and tomato lecturer, pumpkin producer, plant propagator, interior landscaper and garden designer.
After over 20 years working at a leading land-based college as Head of Horticulture, I am now relishing the freedom of working as a freelance horticultural business consultant, speaker and trainer.
The highlight of the week is co presenting The Great Outdoors, a two-hour gardening phone in on BBC Radio Humberside, and visiting the BBC allotment where we trial new varieties of veg and fruit, and it has to be said, drink far too much coffee…
